Long Description:
The statue was created by artist Sigurjón Ólafsson in 1936. The statue depicts a footballer (or what would be called a soccer player in some countries) in motion with a soccer ball being kicked by his right foot. Only a small portion of his arms are present, perhaps in recognition of the requirement of soccer players to use their feet to strike or pass the ball, and not their hands.
Sector of the workforce: Football (Soccer) Players

Created or Donated by which group: Sigurjón Ólafsson
