Skinny Dipping, Hamburg Style

She is known as Die Badende (The Bather). She's a 13 foot high and 67 foot long statue, cooling off for ten days in Hamburg's Inner Alster Lake.

The sculpture, made from a steel cage covered with Styrofoam almost a foot thick by artist Oliver Voss, is a massive advertisement for the British beauty brand Soap & Glory.

Soap & Glory was introduced in Germany last year. This is the company's way of saying "Thanks" for the product's popularity.

I'm wondering if the folks on Madison Avenue are looking out their windows at the East River a little differently, now?
