Statue

This statue is dedicated to the men and women of Norwegian blood who have contributed to the building of America as you can read on the stone. It was built 150 years ago.
Updated 30/6/06
More than 160 years ago Norwegian people started the immigration. This statue was made to celebrate the 100th year of immigration which means that it was built around 60 years ago. My apology.

The sculpture's pose is startling.

louise : viking was not included. Viking era was about thousand year ago.

kate : for Norwegian, America means USA. The link given by bahr might be useful to answer your question. Thanks bahr for the assistance.
