Sólfar - Sun Voyage

Sólfar the Sun Voyager, sitting on the Reykjavík waterfront, is a massive steel sculpture by artist Jón Gunnar Arnason. It may resemble a Viking ship, but was it was originally envisaged as dream boat and ode to the sun, based on a spiritual vision by Arnason. Curiously, Arnason was dying of leukaemia at the time the Sun Voyager was being constructed, so some argue that the Sun Voyager may have been viewed as a vessel that transports souls to the realm of death.
