“Unique and artistic sculpture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

We drove by this sculpture on a bus, the driver pointed it out, slowed right down but since we were on a tour heading out of the city, he could not stop. It was a beautiful day and the metal just glistened in the sun with the water in the back ground. Although, it is a very modern sculpture, it does elicit imagination of what the viking era could have been like...an eerie feeling of days gone by...

“Something special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014 via mobile

A walk in Reykjavik city must also be accompanied by the walk on waterfront to witness this sculpture. It has something which makes it feel different. Really impressive.

Noticed this sculpture on the harbour as we drove into Reykjavik. Beautiful simple sculpture. Easy walk from centre of town.

“Drove past it in the cab”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Ticked that off my list very easily. Looks fine, but if pushed for time I really can't recommend adding this to your list of attractions to visit. Its a sculpture that overlooks the sea that has some historic meaning. However, if your're along that way its really nice to see.
