Leif the Lucky @ Eiriksstadir in Haukadalur
Leif the Lucky found America just before the year 1000, long before Chrosopher Columbus.
Here, Leif is looking towards Amerika and in the background is a replica of his father's house in Haukadalur, where Leif grew up.
This staute of Leif the Lucky is by Nína Sæmundsdóttir and came second in a contest for a gift to Iceland celebrating Alþingi's 1000 years in 1930.
The statue that won is the one of Leifur at Skólavörðuholt in Reykjavik.
