Sea-Farers All

No trip to Reykjavik would be complete without visiting Jon Gunnar Arnason's sculpture 'Solfar' (Sea Voyager) winner of the city's 1986 outdoor sculpture contest in honor of Reykjavik's 200th anniversary. The statue is fittingly placed within the city where the community meets the sea.

Though Solfar has been described as an 'ode to the sun', the sculpture also clearly expresses the Icelandic experience in its locale. It recreates a skeleton of a boat whose oars resemble the ribs of a whale. Antlered sailors whimsically suggest the Viking as horned warrior. But the figures also convey the reindeer themselves.

Solfar is Reykjavik. But it is also life - a boat of voyagers clearly from nature but a-sail upon it. Don't miss seeing it.
