Oliver Voss' sculpture titled "The Bather" is installed in Binnenalster lake in Hamburg Germany.
The sculpture is made of steel and styrofoam. It is 4 meters high by 30 meters long (approx. 13 x 98 feet) and is on display for only ten days.
Since the project was sponsored by a local soap company which uses a mermaid as their branding image, some people claim the sculpture is a blatant advertisement, even though no logo or product description is shown.
Readers, what do you think? Is it art or an advertisement?
