A rare figure

When visiting Rome or Malta or Madrid these religious figures are on every second house, but in Copenhagen they're not common. This rare one is from a house in Nyhavn (New Harbour), the 17th Century harbour area that is now more of an entertainment area with a lot of waterfront restaurants, cafés and bars of the more colourful type.

In this harbour you can still see old wooden ships at the quay, but they can be hard to see for the crowds that gather here on sunny days. One of the most famous Danes lived here for quite some years. Can you guess who that was? I'll reveal it tomorrow.
