THEY EXPLORE THESE CONNECTIONS AND IN IN WHAT WAYS THEY ARE MANIFEST IN THE LANDSCAPE AROUND LAMBEYRARHÁLS AND THE MOUNTAIN TÁLKNI, SET BETWEEN PATREKSFJÖRÐUR AND TÁLKNAFJÖRÐÐUR. THEY HAVE CONCENTRATED PARTICULARLY ON A FLOCK OF FERAL SHEEP, WHICH OCCUPIED THE MOUNTAIN FOR SOME DECADES BUT WERE HEARDED AND SLAUGHTERED AT THE END OF 2009 AND FINALLY, AT THE BEGINNING OF 2010. CENTRAL TO THIS RESEARCH ARE QUESTIONS REGARDING THE ESSENTIAL RIGHT OF ANIMALS TO LIVE AND THE BASIS OF RULES AND REGLULATIONS THAT EXIST IN RESPECT OF DIFFERENT ANIMAL SPECIES.
