I t cannot be said there is stiff competition in the grassy knoll category of things. That famous grassy knoll in Dallas, Texas holds top honors and is likely to do so for the foreseeable future. But we have a candidate for second place.

Walking leisurely along the harbor area of Reykjavik city in Iceland you cannot but notice an odd looking half-moon like structure at one end of the harbor. From afar some folks, mainly men, could mistake the thing for a woman´s breast and quicken their step immediately. Closer look is bound to disappoint those while perhaps delighting some others.

opinions on the structure differs wildly

This large eight meter high mound of earth and grass is an artwork by a local woman and while opinions on the structure differs wildly it makes for quite some viewing platform over the harbor and onto the center of the city.

Þúfa, as the work is called, actually belongs to a fishing company right by but is open to everyone and a nice idea if you have exhausted visiting the delights of downtown Reykjavik.

Finding it is easy: use your eyes. If that does not help just walk along the harbor, roughly ten minute walk from downtown, and you cannot but stumble upon it. Bring your camera and some tissue if your husband gets over excited.
