Colorful Heads, Thumb Trees, and Other Icelandic Curiosities

Street art in Reykjavik, Iceland

This lion and other face? are two of four gorgeous artworks hidden in this tiny alley. If you are visiting Reykjavik, they are on Bergstaðastræti right off Laugavegur and very easy to find, but you probably won’t notice them unless you are looking for them. Here is a link to the spot on google street view, which also shows you a glimpse of one of the two pieces I didn’t photograph. Street art in Reykjavik, Iceland
