Have you been to Reykjavik, Iceland? If so, then this church facade is engraved in your mind, as it towers above everything in the city.
It's named after Icelandic minister and poet, Hallgirmur Petursson. It's also the National Church of Iceland (Evangelical Lutheran).
Completed in 1986, the unique design reflects Iceland's landscape with its glaciers, mountains, and trap-rocks.
Outside the church is a statue of the first North American explorer, Leif Erikson. It was gifted by the USA in 1930 to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of Iceland's parliament.
We handcraft this church from 3/4" thick wood with all the architectural details on the front and its story on the back.
You can set it on a mantle, bookshelf, windowsill, or perch it on the trim above your door or window. Most importantly, place it in a spot where you see it every day to remind you of that once in a lifetime trip.
Look closely and you'll find Casper, our black cat mascot, waiting patiently outside the church for a pet from a passerbyer.
