Denmark's Blinking Merman Sculpture

Don't we all love an intriguing sculpture? Visit Elsinore, Denmark this summer and you'll be able to view the latest sculptural project by artists Elmgreen & Dragset. As the new male counterpart to Denmark's national icon The Little Mermaid, Han sits on top of a boulder that has all been cast in polished stainless steel. Watch this sculpture closely and you'll notice that for a split second once every hour, Han will blink! That's right. There's a hidden hydraulic mechanism within him. Right after that moment, Han goes back to being a static statue. Wild!
