Man of steel

 

One of the more controversial sculptures in Copenhagen is this one. It was placed in the harbour a few months ago right next to the old custom houses in a place where he is really visible to all the tourist passing on the walk from the Little Mermaid to Amalienborg Palace. Sitting on a key of steel and made of old machine parts and steel tubing, many find him misplaced and plain ugly. I actually find him a nice addition to the area.
