Artist's Description

Goðafoss (Waterfall of the gods) is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland. The water of the river Skjálfandafljót falls from a height of 12 meters over a width of 30 meters.
In the year 999 or 1000 the Lawspeaker Þorgeir Ljósvetningagoði made Christianity the official religion of Iceland. After his conversion it is said that upon returning from the Alþingi, Þorgeir threw his statues of the Norse gods into the waterfall.
Þorgeir’s story is preserved in Ari Þorgilsson’s Íslendingabók.
