Thor & goats by Haukur Halldórsson (Straumur, Iceland)

Iceland : Thor goats by Haukur Halldórsson (Straumur, Iceland).

The 'Lady of the Mountain' (Fjallkonan) is the female incarnation of   Iceland. While she symbolised what Icelanders considered to be genuine   and purely Icelandic, in her purity she reflected a deep-seated, but unattainable,   wish of Icelanders to be a totally independent nation. Fjallkonan is thus not only a national   symbol, she also represents the national vision, the nation's ultimate dream.
