We stumbled across this feller as we were heading down to see the Little Mermaid, he's an interesting guy sat on his giant key looking like he's contemplating life!

Stumbled upon this while walking to see the little mermaid. It's really big and looks great close up. We had dinner at the restaurant next to this. Nice fish and chips.
