This striking stainless steel sculpture sits on the waterfront in Reykjavik, promising its viewers a dream of undiscovered territory, hope, progress and freedom.

Thanks to everyone who brought us some blue last week – it was great to see so many shades and origins, from plants, through sky and sea, to tiles, sculptures, feet and even hair! Following a recent big birthday, I wondered if it was time for a blue tint, and Geriatrix has shown me an alternative way of tackling that! And Brian brought us some blue music, in addition to his natural blues.

If you didn’t have chance to check them out, the links are below.

    1. You mean the boat inspired to some extent by whaling boats?
      That could be true, even unintentionally. It is certainly supposed to be based on a ship bound to explore, to find the good, influenced to some extent by the theory that Icelanders saled in from Mongolia.

  1. Oh, this is so beautiful and provoking “Fernweh” (we have a term for homesickness in German, Heimweh – and there is the opposite Fernweh which can only inadequately translated as wanderlust or yearning to see distant places, I think the romanticists coined the word). It’s with bashfulness that I present my very mundane offering: https://picturesimperfectblog.wordpress.com/2019/01/27/pack-up-your-troubles-in-the-old-car-boot/
