7 Vonin Sculpture at Grindavík on Reykjanes Peninsula, Iceland

The village of Grindavík has always been dependent on fishing and tolerant of tragedy. This Seamen’s Monument featuring a grieving family look towards the sea is named “Vonin” meaning “Hope.” The sculpture by Ragnar Kjartansson was erected in 1980. At the base is an inscription reading, “In patience and trust your strength must be.”
