Please tell me everything about this statue
in Reykjavik, Iceland, purportedly a celebration of the "Unknown Bureaucrat" or "Unknown Civil Servant." Is it satire? Who is the sculptor? What's the true title and date of installation?

I don't think this can be its true title, since Google only reveals tourists' photographs under that search term. Most Icelanders I talked to about it thought it was probably a joke, but perhaps it makes sense as a serious memorial for a country without a military?
Anyway, I love it. Tell me everything!
