Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Created by the Venetian artist Monica Bonvicini, it responds to tides, currents and winds thus changing perspectives as per ambient conditions.

Containing an agglomeration of materials such as glass, steel and Styrofoam. Inspired by Caspar David Friedrich’s painting The Sea of Ice it replicates the ice and its power depicted dramtically in the painting.

Launched in 2010 it is now a terrific landmark and focal point in Oslofjord in front of the Opera House.

Oslo is a very wealthy city, clean with pleasant people. The art is all over and we loved all we saw from Noble Peace center to the sculpture gardens to the
Resturant’s. The opera house was beautiful and if we had one more day…we would have bought tickets for a performance. We continued on to Longyearbyen and went to the Arctic where we became one with nature and followed the path of White Polar bears, arctic foxes, bearded seals, local reindeer and more. No such thing as bad weather, only bad clothes and we were advised what to wear so the cold was never an issue.

It's a beautiful sculpture and the way it plays off the Opera House glacier-theme is fabulous. I loved that you can see it from anywhere in the harbor and that way it looks different with the time of day and the light shining on it. We didn't realize it moved until we took the Opera House tour and the docent told us it isn't stationary. It's a very interesting sculpture.

I saw this from various sides but hadn’t realised it was a sculpture. I thought it was a Scandinavian interpretation of the pyramids in front of the Louvre until I read about it. I saw it from the viewing bar at the top of the Munch museum and thought it was connected to the opera house. It fitted in its environment but I’m still undecided what I think about it. Clever but why?

I like it for the fact that it feels like a companion to its bigger sister, the Opera House of Oslo. She Lies gives a good perspective of dimension to Opera House.

She Lies was created by Monica Bonvicini. It is made of glass and stainless steel and represents an iceberg. It floats permanently in the fjord in front of the Oslo Opera House and changes direction with the wind and currents. It is certainly unique and worth a gander if you visit the Opera House (which you definitely should do). But not worthy of a separate trip.

I saw it. I took pictures of it. I have no bloody idea what exactly it is, or is supposed to be, as I haven't googled it yet. But hey, it's there.

The 'She Lies' sculpture by Monica Bonvicini can be found floating beside the Oslo Opera house. This sculpture of stainless steel and glass panels looks like a beautiful iceberg floating past the opera house.

At certain angles you can guess that it might represent sailboards but most of the time it looks like marine fly tipping.
