Long Description:
The following information was found on the Keflavik International Airport website - "The artwork is designed by Magnús Tómasson. 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." It is situated north of the air terminal in a floodlight pond. "
