We just happened upon this when we wandered down to the cafe/bar by the water when seeking out the Little Mermaid. Hot day... we needed a drink and here was this guy. He rewarded us.

We saw this statue on our walking tour from the pier. I left it alone to ponder its thoughts. My wife grabbed a photo when it wasn’t looking.

When visiting the little harbor near Toldboden this large metal guy contemplating life gives good photo opportunities. Quite often kids are crawling on top of him - and he does not seem to mind. This scrap metal as its best! Lets get more of this...More

We stumbled across this feller as we were heading down to see the Little Mermaid, he's an interesting guy sat on his giant key looking like he's contemplating life!

On our walk from Little Mermaid to Gefion Fountain, we passed this statue. I love finding unexpected works of art. We would have liked to get a picture, but there were many others admiring the piece.

Stumbled upon this while walking to see the little mermaid. It's really big and looks great close up. We had dinner at the restaurant next to this. Nice fish and chips.

Directly opposite the Opera on the way to the Little Mermaid saw this interesting statue. It was set here by the sculptor Kim Michael, who works under the pseudonym Zinker. This is modern version of the famous Rodin's Thinker. A beautiful place for photographs.
