An Icelandic Icon

Einar Jonsson, Iceland's first sculptor, is not easily missed in Reykjavik. From the imposing hilltop statue of Iceland's first settler to Einar's parliament-site representation of independence hero Jon Sigurosson, Einar Jonsson is never far away.

Visitors, however, should not miss the chance to see a great deal more. Inside the Einar Jonsson Museum's singular sandstone edifice is a collection of art and historical artifacts that can only awe.

The museum houses the range of the artist's sculptural works, large and small, from bas-relief to full sculpture. It is a collection that pays tribute to Einar's genius in a career which fused classical art with northern myth to produce disturbingly tangible representations of the psyche and spirit. Indescribably worth seeing.
