• The Shore Piece Sculpture by Sigurður Guðmundsson
    As the name implies, there are some interesting sculptures along the Sculpture and Shore walk in Reykjavík. Although sculptures are often quite visible placed on a foundation for display others are not so obvious.

By the breakwater is a popular...
