Travel Tuesday - Iceland
Eggs in Happy Bay, Djupivogur, Iceland
On Tuesdays I allow myself a field trip and dip into old travel albums. How about them eggs! The outdoor sculpture of 34 stone eggs known as "Eggin i Gleoivik" (Eggs in Happy Bay) are by the celebrated artist Sigurour Guomundsson, They represent the thirty-four local birds found in Iceland. They are all the same size except for the single larger one. What a happy artistic surprise in a small village.
