Grassroots square is a square in Teatergata in Oslo, near the government offices (regjeringskvartalet). It is one of the lesser know attractions – if at all!- you can see in Oslo. I had walked the streets of the Norwegian capital numerous times since 2012 when I moved here, and I found it literally by chance!
Only a couple of my acquaintances had heard of this article on the day I was writing it.

Grass roots is an artwork created by the South Korean artist Do Hu Suh and consists of 50000 bronze sculptures. It is a vertical monument representing the base layer of the society – its people. The artist respected the architects’ wishes for a flat square outside the government building. I am not an art expert myself but I would certainly recommend you pay a visit to this monument as it is unique in its own way!
