The shadow of Ásmundur Sveinsson's sculpture Giantess (1948) turned into cast iron. The giantess becomes a shadow on a table, a plate under hot vessels. Ásmundur said that trolls reminded him of mountains and that the mountains were trolls. The interplay of man and nature in Ásmundur's work takes on countless images and is a source of endless ideas and emotions.

Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893-1982) was one of the pioneers of Icelandic sculpture. His artworks manifest the Icelandic narrative tradition, society and nature. Many of his works are accessible in public spaces in Reykjavík. It was the artist's opinion that art belonged to the masses.
