Siggi’s Gallery

In the middle of the busy capital area Reykjavik is an open garage filled with hand-carved wooden dolls. Sigurður Petersen sits in this open garage most afternoons carving wood meditatively. He makes dolls, that he calls characters, of different sizes and emotions.


Siggi also has another busy job, where he builds a family tree tracing back people in time. The journey of building the tree has surprises for him on either sides- the past and the future.


Siggi’s Gallery is in itself a unique world of characters and stories.
