The Danish sculptor Jens Galschiot will sink his statue of Hans Christian Andersen into Odense Harbor this Saturday, and pull it out again next year on Andersen’s birthday. The Guardian "Artist Jens Galschiot's bronze sculpture of the fairytale author has stood in Odense town square for the last five years. According to Galschiot, the city was planning to make it part of The Storyteller's Fountain, a larger sculpture intended to be placed in the centre of Odense, honouring the Danish author by recreating the stories he wrote."

Could he do a statue of "Drama", because he certainly has a grasp of the concept..

That said...so, it's OK to sink anything in a public harbor in Odense?

That sculpture, much like Rodin's The Thinker, would be much improved by seating the figure on a toilet.

Well it is being submerged in the ocean and the ocean is kind of like one giant toilet, right?
