Outside Tønsberg Cathedral is a memorial to Svend Foyn who was a whaling and shipping tycoon who developed new methods of hunting whales including the pioneering of a modern harpoon cannon which changed the whaling industry. The statue was created by Norwegian sculptor Anders Svor.

The statue is close to the church in Toensberg. The important thing here is what he did for the area. So google it and read about him.
