Vandbærerske (Water Carrying Girl) - a.k.a. "Struerpigen" (The Struer Girl)
In my hometown, Struer (Denmark) is a beautiful bronze statue, made by sculptor Anker Hoffmann and revealed on 13th July 1931. Hoffmann had made a small plaster statuette 1929, and his friend, and at that time famous author Johannes Bucholtz, applied secretly The New Carlsberg Foundation for money, which they granted, to erect the full size bronze statue. Hoffmann was actually married in 1927 with a girl from Struer. I think the sculpture is a portrait of his beautiful wife, Fro Vibeke Larsen.
