In 2010 Copenhagen's world-famous mermaid statue of The Little Mermaid from Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale went to China for a part of the year to be part of the Shanghai 2010 World Expo. While the original statue of The Little Mermaid was visiting China, and for the first time in 98 years was not on display in Copenhagen's Langelinie harbor, the heirs of sculptor Edvard Eriksen graciously made their own copy of the statue available to visitors at Copenhagens Tivoli Gardens. This copy is 4/5 the size of the original. map
It was affectionately referred to as 'the little sister of The Little Mermaid" while it was at Tivoli Gardens, but is identical except for being about 20% smaller. The statue was returned to the owners after the original The Little Mermaid statue returned from China.
