Lewis & Clark taken with Pentax K-1 and Pentax-M 150/3.5 by Jason Doss, on Flickr

Lewis & Clark famously set up came at the confluence of the Missouri and Kansas Rivers, which is honored by this statue.

On the banks of Flat River in Greenville, Michigan sits a near-replica of The Little Mermaid statue in Denmark. The face of the statue is quite drastically different, and very distinct. Nonetheless, the Flat River mermaid became the center of an international controversy concerning the copyrights of the original sculptor, Edvard Eriksen. The City of Greenville was sued by Eriksen’s heirs for copyright infringement in 2009, 15 years after the flat River mermaid was sculpted by David Willison. The lawsuit was later dropped. At 30 inches, it is a little over half the size of the Danish statue.

A plague next to the sculpture reads: In one of Hans Christian Andersen’s best known fairy tales, a mermaid must choose between her love for a prince and life under the sea. This replica of the Edvard Eriksen statue that graces the harbor in Copenhagen, Denmark, was crafted by artist Steve Willison and dedicated on August 18, 1994, by the Danish Festival Board in honor of this area’s proud Danish heritage.




Unfortunately the sun was directly behind it so this was about the only angle I could get.
