Walt Disney World- Olaf II

This figure of Olaf II in the Norway pavilion at EPCOT Center sits on its throne as king and patron Saint of Norway. Olaf II unified Norway and was influential in the conversion of the country from paganism to Christianity. He is honored here at Walt Disney World as Saint Olaf II.


Another view of the figure with flash on to show more detail of the sculpt and of the wardrobe.
