Balance -Vogun vinnur vogun tapar

(Icelandic or foreign)

Around 6' high, and 4' wide.

Balancing stones.


I have often wondered why Icelanders don´t use more of their abundant stone resorces and go rather for the foreign .


Balance in show at Gerdarmuseum

You can tilt the bar choosing either the Icelandic stone or the foreign stone.

The round stone is Icelandic, the square stone is a portugal roadstone that was used in the main shopping street in Reykjavik, Laugarvegur. A whole ship cargo of this stone was imported for that one street some years ago and now their have redone that street again trying to reuse some of thouse stones in other locations in the city.
