34 huge granite eggs represent the eggs of each of the nesting birds in this area, many of which are migrating birds, flying over to Iceland from far away to lay their eggs in Iceland.  Each one of the 34 eggs is an exact replica of the egg of the bird in question. The eggs are all different in shape, nuance, and colour. Most of the bird species represented by the eggs are migratory and the best bird-watching time in Iceland is from June to August.


The amazing sculpture is the work of noted visual artist, Sigurður Guðmundsson.
