15 Bárður Snæfellsás Statue at Arnarstapi on Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

Although this looks like a decorative pile of rocks, the Bárður Snæfellsás statue by artist Ragnar Kjartansso commemorates the story of a medieval Arnarstapi resident. Bárður was a half-man, half-troll who lived here after fleeing Norway. After a severe family argument, he exiled himself to the Snæfellsnes Glacier. For centuries, the locals believed he was their protector and called him the Guardian Spirit of Snæfell.
