ICELAND – Two continents meet in Iceland, lying as it does on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge between the North-American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Iceland is known as the lan of ice and fire, as both active volcanos and enormous glaciers can be found there. Icelandic nature contains many such contrasting features – lush valleys and expansive deserts, narrow fjords and vast plains, high waterfalls and big lakes.
THE FLOWER OF LIFE is a recurring pattern in Nordic visual art. The pattern can be traced to Asia, where the term originated. It may be compared to the tree Yggdrasill, the source of life. The design of the Flower of Life is also modelled upon the flower drawings of the artist Sölvi Helgason, one of the most famous wanderers in the history of Iceland.
