The Little Mermaid, the girl who traded her life under the sea for legs and prince charming, sits on a rock in the water in Copenhagen. A fairy tale by the famed Hans Christian Andersen, people flock from all over to see the girl. In 1913 Jacobson commissioned Edvard Eriksen to create a granite sculpture of the Little Mermaid perched on a rock. A favorite tale by Jacobsen, he decided to donate this sculpture to the city of Copenhagen, commemorating his love of the tale for all who visit.
