Girl in a Wetsuit Statue – Vancouver, Canada
When walking or biking along Stanley Park’s waterfront in Vancouver you will see the small statue of a woman diver; titled “Girl in a Wetsuit” by Elek Imredy), which sits on a rock that protrudes close to the edge of the water.
The design of the statue is based on an unofficial modern reinterpretation of a Copenhagen statue called The Little Mermaid, which sits similarly on a rock in the harbor of Denmark’s capital.
During the 2011 Stanley Cup, the woman diver statue was dressed with a Canucks shirt in representation of the popular soccer team. It goes without saying that people in Vancouver are die-hard fans of hockey and their team!
