Plastic bather in Hamburg’s lake

Badende Hamburg Getty Images Yahoo Aug 2011.jpgReclining in the waters of Hamburg‘s Binnenalster lake is this German sculpture “Die Badende” (the bather) made from expandable polystyrene (styrofoam) and steel, according to an article on Yahoo news today.

It is a giant sculpture by artist Oliver Voss showing a woman’s head and knees, as if she was lying down in the water, and will be on display for the first half of August.

In the background can be seen Hamburg‘s renowned Vier Jahreszeiten hotel, with the green roof, which hosted the summer European Petrochemical Luncheon (EPL) a few years ago.
