This statue is so homely bordering on ugly that it is endearing. The Crying Boy (Grinegutten) was created in 1948 by Sofus Madsen. He spent most of his 96 years (1881 – 1977) sculpting life-size and larger-than-life human figures. If you like his work, you can see 28 more scattered throughout Bergen. On Sundays during the summer, you can also visit the Sofus Madsen Sculpture Museum (Skulpturmuseum) in the Landås neighborhood.
