Reykjavik, Iceland: Sun Voyager

There are many ways to celebrate a birthday. Reykjavik decided to do it by commissioning a big piece of public art in 1986.

Say hello to the "Sun Voyager," which was placed on the waterfront in 1990. Jon Gunnar Arnason did the heavy lifting here, an "ode to the sun."

Sadly, Arnason died in 1989, just before his project was seen in public. It looked like a steady stream of visitors came to see it and take pictures during our visit.
