The Jet Nest
The artwork is designed by Magnús Tómasson and it is situated north of the air terminal in a floodlight pond. The Jet Nest shows a big steel egg where a jet wing is peeking out like a little bird breaking out of it's egg. The piece is very simbolic where it stands on a pile of Icelandic rocks. Magnús Tómasson , the designer, says that the idea first came to him many years ago. "I was working on a series on the history of birds mentioning a small egg and on it a small beek appears. I worked on it some more and the outcome was the Jet Nest, my biggest piece."

Great picture, with the reflection in the pond, and the sunlight reflecting off the egg!
I had seen this many times and always assumed it was some sort of dinosaur hatching.
Thanks for the informative note!

interesting piece of art, well captured with the wonderful reflections on the water and the
golden light on the shiny silver surface of the "egg". well done & best wishes, thor.

Uma composição interessante, com elementos pouco comuns, bem ajustada fototecnicamente. As cores estão igualmente boas.
