Þotuhreiður, or "Jet Nest" :

This is a big steel egg from whichis coming out the wing tip (or the beak) of a jet plane, the same way that a baby bird come out of the egg, breaking its shell. This work by Magnús Tómasson is symbolically placed on a Icelandic rock mound that takes the place of the nest in the middle of a pond, where it is reflected in good weather.

Born in Reykjavik in 1943, he exhibited in the early sixties, and is graduated from the Royal Academy in Copenhagen in 1969.

The designer said that the first idea came to him a few years ago ... "I was busy working on a series about avian story, citing a small egg which appeared the tip of the beak. I reworked the idea and the Jet Nest, my biggest piece came out. " He developed his idea about the airport, where the aircraft "live and were born, before learning to fly there."

Regnbogi, the rainbow of Thuridur Rúrí Fannberg :

The sculpture, made of stainless steel and tinted glass, is 24 meters high, placed on a natural stone base.

As Rúrí said, "I like to think this rainbow like an unfinished construction, and imagine that one day perhaps, after hundreds or thousands of years, someone might decide to continue this work. The construction would rise higher and higher in the sky, before going down to become a full rainbow "

The art on the way of fire - Keflavik Airport art: Þotuhreiður and Regnbogi.
