There is a half-size bronze replica of Edvard Eriksen’s sculpture of The Little Mermaid in the International Peace Gardens in Salt Lake City. These gardens contain contributions from twenty six countries.
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. It was placed here on June 5th 1955 (Danish Constitution Day).
The statue has been stolen twice, latest in 2010, but was recovered on both occasions.
