The Little Mermaid & The Tourist

Illustration 007

In 1963, when the sculpture of The Little Mermaid, situated in the harbour of Copenhagen, was about to celebrate her 50th anniversary, The Tourist Association of Copenhagen (Wonderful Copenhagen) chose Ib Antoni as the designer of the official jubilee-poster.

On purpose, Ib Antoni has drawn The Little Mermaid very large in comparison to the smiling tourist, maybe to emphasize how big she is in the eyes of the visiting tourists.

Ib Antoni once stated to a Danish newspaper: “New York has the Statue of Liberty and London has the Bobby. The Little Mermaid is and will always be the best symbol of Copenhagen”.

This illustration was made in 1963 for The Tourist Association of Copenhagen (Wonderful Copenhagen).
