Call it "The Bath of the 70-foot Woman." Or "Two Tons of Mermaid."
The real name of the massive woman in a Hamburg, Germany, lake is actually "Die Badende" ("The Bather"), and she's an ad for British beauty brand Soap & Glory.
"We launched Soap & Glory in Germany last year, and we've been looking for a way to say, 'Thank you!' to everyone for embracing our products, and making us a real success there. At Soap & Glory, we consider it our calling to bring more beauty to the world, and have fun doing it – 'Die Badende' does exactly that," the brand's founder, Marcia Kilgore, said in a news release.
"Die Badende" is the work of art creator Oliver Voss. It's almost 13 feet high, 67 feet long and weighs two tons.
The sculpture is made from a steel cage covered with Styrofoam almost a foot thick, which is then covered by a layer of special filler sealed with a polyester resin.
It will spend 10 days in Hamburg's Inner Alster Lake.
Apparently, "Die Badende" is as modest as "she" is massive. Soap & Glory promises a crane will be standing by with a supersize towel when "Die Badende" is ready to come out of the water.
Does she spread her legs when you get close or something?
Hope that she doesn't have gas or those innocent boaters could be killed !
Germany is so damned weird<3
I think it is very cleaver.
Sorta looks like she's been there and done that.
stupid just as Forest Gump would say stupid is as stupid does
Am I the only one not entirely creeped out by this?
That is a real safety hazard; did anyone think about what happens when she farts; huh, did ya.
The sculpture is made with Styrofoam almost a foot thick, which is then covered by a layer of special filler sealed with a polyester resin. Toss a flare on her and she goes up like a roman candle.
That thing is an atrocity, lady gaga has more feminine appeal.
Lady GaGa is not a male. Lady GaGa is not a female. Lady GaGa is a Hermaphrodite.
"Did I miss something?"
Probably a lot of something. In a world that considers Lady Gagag brilliant or Jackson Pollack brilliant, you easily come to the conclusion that many people will find this to be brilliant.
Start using that blob of dormant flesh between your ears for something other than filler.
Actually, the brain is mostly fat cells. Thicker than flesh dermis.
Are people allowed to dive deep into her ;)
Come out and catch a fish then take the "tunnel of love"
She is the real 'chicken-of-the-sea' as Jessica Simpson would say.
Wasn't Germany the leader in artistic talent once upon a time?
When I read the headline I thought this article was about Oprah swimming in the Rhine...Boy was I wrong!!
Hmm, thinking bad thoughts, very bad thoughts right now!
