The Eggs of Merry Bay
Just 900 metres from the Djupivogur village centre at Gleðivík, (Merry Bay) lies undoubtedly one of the most unusual sculptures in Iceland. Created in 2009 by Icelandic artist Sigurður Guðmundsson, it consists of 34 large scale replicas representing 34 bird species found in the area. Each one, different from the others, with shades of colour, shape and nuance, is beautifully executed. I love it how even if this town is really small you get to enjoy some really unusual and beautiful art. The town itself is really quiet, and very pretty with it's colorful houses. The cafe offers very good coffee and other treats.
