Modern sculpture on the seaside of the city. The location is quite good considering its meaning for the artist.

A popular spot for tourist photos along the sea front but worth stopping to take in the breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains. Suggest going there at sun rise as it hits the mountains in the background..

We stopped at this site just prior to sunset and the view with the mountains in the background was gorgeous. We also found watercolor postcards of this statue that we took home and had framed.

That´s not true. In December in Reykjavik you have at least 4 hours of light. You can go to the page timeanddate, and check there the sunrises and the sunsets. Hope it help you.
