Inspired by a ballerina

The sculpture was inspired by ballerina Ellen Price, who in 1909 danced the lead role in the ballet The Little Mermaid at the Royal Theatre.

However, Ellen Price would not model in the nude for sculptor Edvard Eriksen. Thus Eriksen’s wife, Eline Eriksen, posed for the sculpture of The Little Mermaid.

The sculpture is made of bronze and granite and was inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale about a mermaid who gives up everything to be united with a young, handsome prince on land.

Fell in love

Carl Jacobsen fell in love with the character after watching a ballet performance based on the fairy tale at the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen.

The brewer was so captivated by both the fairy tale and the ballet that he commissioned the sculptor Edvard Eriksen to create a sculpture of the mermaid.

People have wasted centuries and centuries on different versions of mermaids and mermen and respective psychoanalysis (escapist psychology), but have neither invested enough time on spreading the progressive ideas of Radical Pacifism nor supported it. Even the brilliant minds who have been teaching about the importance of Pacifism have been divested of material support that the military is grabbing without a speck of conscience from the anti-military/anti-war people who truly deserve material support... and the unthinking masses continues to believe the liars because the unthinking masses are afraid of the weapons that their own military can turn against those who refuse to populate their "ranks or power-sick control".
