The International Peace Gardens was the third place to receive permission from the Danish King and the artist, Edvard Eriksen, to have a copy of the famous mermaid statue, which was placed there on June 5th 1955 (Danish Constitution Day).
The statue has been stolen twice, latest in 2010, but was recovered on both occasions.
This is one of the many copies of Edvard Eriksen's original mermaid statue placed in Copenhagen harbor in 1913.
