Deeply Disturbing



Giant Statue Sighting In Hamburg: A "Mermaid" Sculpture Rises In Germany's Alster Lake

Am I the only one who finds this creepy?

Cube - I wrote a comment on this but made a mistake and it appears in the post about the obamamints.

More deeply disturbing are the knees. Since when did mermaids have knees...or are those malformed breasts?

cube said...

Sue: That's OK.

BTW I looked up "The Awakening and you weren't kidding. Yikes! Wikipedia lists other similarly gargantuan sculptures that come out of the ground. Strange theme, but I guess it takes all kinds to make a world... or, if you have studied chemistry, it's alkynes ;-)

cube said...

Granny Annie: I hope they're knees! Giant boobs would be over the top.

Brooke said...

Um, ICK?!?

BeckEye said...

Well, at least they didn't put a fountain in between her legs.

cary said...

Too weird. Glad we don't have those types of "artists" or that big of a body of water close enough to be subjected to that ...

cube said...

Brooke: That's what I'm thinking too.

Beckeye: lol. Way to see the silver lining of THAT cloud.

BTW wouldn't a fountain be more appropriate for a Merman statue...
remember Spongebob's hero?

cube said...

Cary: I found it strange as well. We have plenty of water here in Florida, but thank goodness the artists who think this is art aren't all that plentiful.

I couldn't get beyond the knees/breasts, but at least it has only a few more days to gross out everyone.

YIKES! Creepy to the extreme! If she's a mermaid... where are her fins and scales? No accounting for some people's art tastes.

Z said...

BeckEye, it would be a fountain if she had Mexican food (if you get my drift!) Sorry, I couldn't resist; how disgusting :-)

I don't think she was meant to be a mermaid! Jan, is she not permanent?

I have to say I honeymooned on the Alster lake at the Hotel Atlantic! Neat, huh? It is a fabulous hotel and the lake is beautiful.
But, I kind of like her :-) It's original!

Leticia said...

Yuck! Looks more like a cross-dresser than a mermaid.

Double yuck!

You're not the only one creaped out by this Cube!

Teresa said...

That certainly is creepy, Cube. A pervert must have thought of that statue and where to place it. That's truly sick.

JamieDedes said...

No! You are not alone in this. Very disconcertaing. I would hate to come upon without warning.

Thanks for posting it though. Good for a chuckle.

Chuck said...

I saw this on Drudge. I thought it was creepy then.

Looks like a younger Mrs. Doubtfire giving birth.
