Reykjavik is a city with unique style and cozy atmosphere thanks to its specific architecture, stunning landscape and impressive history.
Apart from a number of must-see landmarks a couple of fascinating monuments will definitely catch your eye. Those stone figures express the soul of the city.
In the middle of the city center of Reykjavik you can find an unusual sculpture. The Unknown Bureaucrat (Óþekkti Embættismaðurinn) is a statue created by artist Magnús Tómasson in 1993.
Conditions for this virtual:
1. to visit the place at given coordinates
LOGS WITHOUT ATTACHED PHOTOS DON'T MEET THE CONDITIONS AND WILL BE DELETED!
2. to take a photo of yourself (no need to show your face), or your gps, toy, talisman or anything else specifying your visit, with the sculpture
3. to attach the photo to your log
If you can log, you can also upload the photo. I don't accept logs saying that the photo will be uploaded later. Thank you for understanding!
„The Unknown Bureaucrat is a popular favourite, as it manages to be both humorous and provocative, while truthfully depicting something that most everyone can relate to, the trivial existence of the working bee. The block of rock is a perfect metaphor for how everyday life crushes down on us, while at the same time depicting the narrative of the faceless official who is only a cog in the wheel, and never a person to most of us.“*
