Sólfar, The Sun Voyager
Commonly mistaken with a Viking ship, Sólfar (The Sun Voyager) is an elegant and beautiful sculpture located on the coastal road of Sæbraut in Reykjavik, Iceland. It was conceived by Jón Gunnar Árnason, back in the 1980s to celebrate the 200thbirthday of the city of Reykjavik. The sculpture was eventually unveiled on August 18, 1990, Reykjavik official birthday.
The artist intended it to convey the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom.
