Carl Nielsen was a composer and his wife was the artist who designed this sculpture. Although there are many equestrian statues around Copenhagen (and indeed the whole world), because this depicts a naked youth riding bareback, it stands out from the crowd.
No earthly adornments...More
The statue is nice work of the Danish sculptor Anne Marie Carl-Nielsen commemorating her husband, the great composer, Carl Nielsen. The full name of the statue is “The Young Man playing Pan-pipes on a Winless Pegasus” and it was finished in 1939.

Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding
neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
