Today August 23 is the 100th birthday of the Little Mermaid.
As you can see, she is actually very Little.
VisitDenmark a video about the birthday.
Greetings from around the World ( Visit Denmark – on facebook)
The Little missing mermaid
…and from what I’ve heard, she’s lead quite an exciting existence…a little running around town as I’ve heard it…or is that swimming around town, not sure 😉
The Little Mermaid went to China in 2011, for half a year, with stone and everything. https://mydailydenmark.wordpress.com/2012/09/11/the-little-missing-mermaid/
Beside this, she lost her head i 1964, and this mystery has never been solved, though there are many theories. One of them is here: http://www.lisahoyrup.dk/jk/det-var-ikke-j%c3%b8rgen-nash-der-skar-hovedet-af-den-lille-havfrue/
Almost 50 years ago, but still a matter of interest. 🙂
When we were in dk in 2003, she was not on her rock. Where was she at that time?
She is tiny, but lovely too! Does she have her original head back?
No, the original head was never found, but it is possible to restore any shape from the original mould (is this the right Word?) which still is available. There has been other attacks, in 1984 she lost her right arm.
