The Little Mermaid to be replaced by Giant Skull

Soon the famous Little Mermaid will be taken down from the Copenhagen Waterfront, to be restored and prepared for its participation at EXPO 2010 in Shanghai. The Little Mermaid will be replaced by a big Skull replica of the early Homo sapiens in China know as Jing Shan.

At the Shanghai EXPO 2010 the architects Bjarke Engels Group - BIG proposed to bring The Little Mermaid to the event as an icon of Denmark. There has been discussion about taking a national treasure abroad, but now everything is settled.

As a result of this  discussed an alternative sculpture was sought to replace The Little Mermaid says Rune Graulund PhD in litterature and a member of Wonderful Copenhagens new board Radiant Copenhagen. 

As a follow up on the year of Charles Darwin and the generel interest in the the origin of man  A Giant Skull will replace The Little Mermaid while she seeks interest in Shanghai.
The Little Mermaid is a welknown character of the Tales of H. C. Andersen. H. C. Andersen was very inspired by the news from the emerging chinese culture. Radiant Copenhagen is proud to announce this solution. Also in this project we will have an exchange of cultures and an interrelation  between two different places in the world.

Our interest in the first signs of mankind and the little mermaids wishes to be human has also common interest in the idea of becoming human.

The replica of the Jing Shan Scull is now under construction in China.
