Denmark's Little Mermaid Gets a New Gentleman Friend

The Little Mermaid has a secret admirer. Elmgreen & Dragset, an artist duo has dreamed up a male companion sculpture for Copenhagen's Little Mermaid, though "Han" will pine for her from Elsinore's harbor, not far from Hamlet's digs at Kronborg Castle. Han is a pretty sleek guy: His skin and perching-stone are both polished stainless steel, and once an hour—in a deliciously creepy twist—he’ll blink for a split second, thanks to an internal hydraulics system. Han moves in permanently on June 2, but we just got these renderings of what he’ll look like. What do you think: Will he be as iconic as Copenhagen’s mermaid?

  1. Já fui muito feliz em Helsingør. Só foi pena que o Han ainda não estivesse lá.

    1. Lol Nunca lá estive mas agora com o pretexto de ver o Han, torna-se um destino incontornável :)
