Crying

Close-up of one of a pair of statues comprising a work of art named Rætur (Roots), by sculptor Steinunn Þórarinsdóttir.

Rætur stands in Bankastræti in the heart of Reykjavík. Steinunn has made many sculptures of human figures, which, for some reason, usually look like they are either really sad, depressed, or in pain, so the drop of water on the tip of this one's nose and the streaks of water on the face made it look like it had taken the leap from sadness to full-on crying.
