Tacky photo props

This is just one of several “take a photo” props situated outside tourist shops in Reykjavík. It is one of the more original of the bunch, and quite well made. It represents Grýla, a fearsome troll woman of folk-tale fame who eats naughty children, and Leppalúði, her husband, who was sickly and weak, but still managed to father the Yule Lads (more about them when Christmas season rolls around).
