'Giant Mermaid' Sculpture in Hamburg's Alster Lake

A giant sculpture of a woman bathing in the picturesque Alster Lake in Hamburg, Germany, has caught the attention of both tourist and locals. The 12-foot-tall floating artwork was designed in three pieces by artist Oliver Voss, advertising executive and head of the advertising academy Miami Ad School. The sculpture was sponsored by a cosmetics company named Soap & Glory.

I’m not sure why this sculpture is called ‘mermaid’ as one can distinctly see her legs.

  1. It'd be cooler if it were actually a mermaid sculpture. The night time shot is pretty awesome!
