/ / Giant Bathing Woman Sculpture in Hamburg

The real name of the massive woman in a Hamburg, Germany, lake is actually "Die Badende" ("The Bather"), and she's an ad for British beauty brand Soap & Glory.

The sculpture of a blonde head and two knees poking out of the water, unashamedly sitting in full view in the middle of a lake, has, like all good public artwork, quickly provoked reaction and debate.

"Die Badende" is the work of art creator Oliver Voss. It's almost 13 feet high, 67 feet long and weighs two tons.

The sculpture is made from a steel cage covered with Styrofoam almost a foot thick, which is then covered by a layer of special filler sealed with a polyester resin.
