This is a modern sculpture which is next to the sea, not far from the Harpa Conference Centre. I say "iconic" because the sculpture is a modernistic depiction of a viking boat - of which the Icelanders associate their culture. To get a photo, you have to wait until the local kids ahve finished climbing all over it.

This sculpture is very beautiful if seen on a sunny day across the harbour. However Iceland's weather can be pretty wet! I would not have walked out to see this if it had been pouring down and it anyone misses this I would not say it is a big loss whilst visiting Reykjavik

I'd say it is a must see, it is beautiful right next to the sea. One was not a good turist in Reykjavik if one didn't take a picture with this one. :-)

Happened upon this while the sun was "setting" (as much as it does in the summer) at 11pm. Enjoyed taking LOTS of photos!

This is a cool sculpture along the walkway that runs along the shore. We took a few walks there each day and it is very relaxing when it is not too windy.
