Vandalism and the Little Mermaid Mar 11, 2017
This seems to be a preoccupation for strange people in Copenhagen. I think the problem is that the statue is so close you can get to her and that alcohol is freely available. Add in the fact that she is a national icon and you have the recipe for disaster. Why do you think the Statue of Liberty in America is on an island? The other problem is that is has been done so many times it seems to urge other would be vandals to do it again.

So what’s happened to her? Quite a lot actually.

• Unveiled 23 August 1913

• 1961 hair painted red and a bra painted on as well

• Decapitated 25 April 1964! The head was never recovered

• 21 July 1984 right arm sawed off, but given back next day

• 2 October 1985 painted blue

• 1990 cuts on her neck left after a decapitation attempt

• January 6th 1998 decapitated again!

• September 11th 2003 knocked completely off her rock and into the water

• December 18, 2004 covered head to tail in a Muslim burqa

• March 8, 2006 painted green and other vandalism

• March 3, 2007­ covered with pink paint

• May 2007 painted again

• 21 May 2007 covered with Hijab (breasts left exposed)

• Next time?

Needless to say, the authorities have never moved her farther into the Copenhagen harbour.
I'm the good looking one
More crap.

Add being stared at, and photographed, naked by thousands of lecherous voyeurs every single day... Poor girl.
