The eggs in Djúpivogur

The Eggs of Merry Bay (Eggin í Gleðivík) is a piece of art created by Sigurður Guðmundsson in 2009. Each of the 34 eggs represents its real life counterpart in shape, colour and pattern. The egg of the Red-throated Diver is the biggest of them, as is the case in nature, but all 34 bird species breed in the surrounding area.

Djúpivogur is a little fishing town in East Iceland and a nice place to stop by on the way. It also has an interesting bird reserve which is worth visiting.
