During walking around center of Odense city you can find this big statue. I do not know what this statue means or shows. Anyway it is just big thing lying on the front of city hall. It is a little strange one with muscles.

This interesting statue lies in a shopping plaza adjacent to a bank we went to. I asked for meaning of item, but no one knew it's origin. It is interesting to look at however

It is located in the old town, in a nice neighborhood near the city hall. It is not very clear what it is, though.
