Where In The World

HERE'S a familiar sight and we're not just talking about the mermaid! It's Swindon councillor Peter Mallinson who was in the Danish city of Copenhagen clutching a copy of the Swindon Advertiser. A landmark that has become synonymous with Copenhagen, the Little Mermaid has gazed out over the harbour from her perch at Langelinie Quay since 1913 The statue was sculpted by Edvard Eriksen and inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale. While she has been subjected to vandalism over the years, including being doused in paint and having her head chopped off, the Little Mermaid statue will leave the Danish shores for the first time next year when it becomes part of the Shanghai World Expo. The statue will be gone for eight months, appearing at the World Expo between May and November.
