Norway's Troll Penis restored to previous glory
July 8, Oslo: The Troll's Penis, a penis-shaped rock formation that had been vandalised and knocked down by vandals has been restored to its anatomical glory.
According to reports, a scaffolding was used to hoist up the protuberance, which weighs about 12 tonnes (12,000kg.)
The restoration operation was funded by a crowdfunding campaign which raised about 227,000 kroner ($27,000).
But tourists will have to wait a week before they can see the formation in order to allow it to fasten properly.
Cement, glue and metal fastenings were used to re-attach the Trollpikken, or "The Troll's Penis" to the cliff.
Police last month said that indentations in the rock suggested vandalism was responsible for the demise of the stone. They say a suspect has been questioned over the incident.
