RIESEN NIXE Oliver Voss
“Riesen- Nixe” is one of the rare examples of public sculpture. Created by the artist Oliver Voss, the extraordinary work is four-meters high and was placed in Lake Alster in Hamburg in August 2011.
Also called as “Badenixe” (bathing beauty) or “Riesen–Nixe” (great mermaid), the sculpture was displayed for a mere 10 days but nevertheless managed to add a humor to the splendor of Hamburg. While tourist used to turn to their cameras in surprise and awe, the locals seemed to be used to the existence of the mermaid in the lake.
