作品“太阳之舟 ”(冰岛文字：Sólfar)是由雕塑家Jón Gunnar Árnason 设计制作完成的（1931 – 1989）。太阳之舟是个歌颂太阳的理想象征。本质上作品本身也包含着未知的领土的承诺，一个希望的梦、进步与自由。雕塑作品位于冰岛雷克雅未克市中心的海滨地区。
1986，城市的西部区协会举办了一次新户外雕塑竞赛以纪念雷克雅未克建城第二百周年， Jón Gunnar凭借作品“太阳之舟”赢得了竞标，并根据铝制模型（42.5 x 88 x 36 cm）进行了扩建，全尺寸的“太阳之舟”雕塑最终在1990年8月18日于雷克雅未克市问世。本作品采用优质不锈钢制作而成，基底则是花岗石板包裹“市政厅混凝土”。作品是在Jón Gunnar的设计图基础上等比放大，由其助手艺术家Kristinn E. Hrafnsson监督完成。
1987年6月11日在报纸ÞJóðviljinn上接受采访时，艺术家Jón Gunnar描述这个项目是斯堪的纳维亚地区一个名为“Experimental Environment”艺术项目的一部分，在80年代那种实验性的环境里在冰岛、丹麦和其他地区诞生了众多的艺术实验，他说道“1985年5月，一群斯堪的纳维亚艺术项目的艺术家，均为“Experimental Environment”的成员，聚集在芬兰博克霍尔姆参加一个Saari-Vala环境艺术行动时，我寻找到了一种冰岛人起源历史的体验，同时也与在目前的展览在雷克雅未克的Nordic House画廊的展览有某种联系。我有一种异样的感觉，我已经在这个岛上之前，就已经在几百年前的旅行途中从蒙古到达冰岛。”
Sun Voyager (Icelandic: Sólfar) is sculpture by Jón Gunnar Árnason (1931 – 1989). Sun Voyager is a dreamboat, an ode to the sun. Intrinsically, it contains within itself the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom. The sculpture is located by Sæbraut, by the sea in the centre of Reykjavík, Iceland.
In 1986, the district association of the west part of the city funded a competition for a new outdoor sculpture to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the city of Reykjavík. Jón Gunnar’s Sun Voyager won the competition, and the aluminium model (42,5 x 88 x 36 cm) was presented to the city for enlargement. The full-sized Sun Voyager was eventually unveiled on Sæbraut on the birthday of the city of Reykjavík, August 18th, 1990.The work is constructed of quality stainless steel and stands on a circle of granite slabs surrounded by so-called “town-hall concrete”. It was constructed in accordance with Jón Gunnar’s enlarged full-scale drawing of Sun Voyager and was overseen by Jón Gunnar’s assistant, the artist Kristinn E. Hrafnsson.
In an interview published in the newspaper Þjóðviljinn on June 11, 1987, Jón Gunnar describes the genesis of the work as being part of the Scandinavian art project, Experimental Environment, which conducted various artistic experiments in Iceland, Denmark and other places in the eighties:In May 1985, a group of artists, members of the Scandinavian art project, Experimental Environment, gathered to take part in the Saari-Vala Environmental Art Action in Bockholm, Finland. There I experienced a sense of the history of the origins of Icelanders, something which is also related in the present exhibition at the Nordic House in Reykjavík. I had an uncanny feeling that I had been on this island before, when travelling on my way from Mongolia to Iceland, hundreds of years ago.
