Fairy-tale kingdom
I got my inspiration from the great Danish fairy-tale writer, Hans Christian Andersen (1805 – 1875). He travelled around the whole world and for a while lived in Nyhavn, the oldest port in the centre of Copenhagen.
“The Little Mermaid“ by Hans Christian Andersen is a well-known fairy tale. It can be admired as a sculpture in Copenhagen, sitting on a rock in the sea.
Soft ice-cream is a speciality in Denmark. Ice-cream with a wafer, with a complexity of flavours – perfect if combined with a fairy tale and a trip to the old funfair, the Tivoli.
The whale on the back of the bear is a symbol of Greenland, the beautiful white island – a piece of Denmark in the Greenland Sea.
The bear’s green colour is reminiscent of the Faroe Islands, a group of islands in the Atlantic Oceans belonging to Denmark, where you can experience the fairy-tale kingdom. Nature is incredibly green there and the landscape is luminescent.
The bear is standing in the sea with both legs. In his eyes, you can see a reflection of boats. The sea is of great significance for Denmark, a country with over 400 islands, largely surrounded by the sea.
