Location: Ásmundarsafn sculpture garden. In this piece, which was made during Ásmundur’s years of study in Sweden, he makes a decision to abandon the traditional, academic view of sculpture art and dedicate himself to more personal formal language. He rejects academic rules and focuses on mass and lines, simplifying all decoration and details. The work is based on horizontal and vertical forces and the conflict between tension and repose.
