The little mermaid

The little mermaid in Copenhagen, a brainchild of Hans Christian Andersen. She is situated on the harbor of Copenhagen so peacefully, staring at the ships in the distance with sad eyes, where she has lost her love forever.

The statue was commisioned by a person named Carl Jacobsen in 1909, who was fascinated by the fairytale, and created by the sculptor Edward Eriksen.
