“Modernist statue of water carrier. ”

Vatnsberinn (Water Carrier)
Ranked #105 of 181 things to do in Reykjavik
Attraction details

Sculpted by Ásmundur Sveinsson the statue represents the lowly paid job of the water carrier, in days gone by this job was done by men and women and was seen as one of the worst jobs you could do. Not far from the tourist information centre, in the direction of the lake.

This is a very nice statue located near the waterfront. Weirdly, the statue was apparently the subject of local controversy when it was first unveiled, and it was moved from its original site.

I rather liked this interesting yet unassuming modernist statue. It is enjoyable to contemplate its blend of abstract and traditional forms. It is a pleasant surprise.

Noteworthy & modern. Strong & robust, across from Hard Rock Cafe. Impressive enough for me to remember it.

Nice piece of sculpture in the park. Would recommend this park for a leisurely stroll. Not to far from the city centre.
