Hamburg’s Inner Alster Lake had a new inhabitant. For ten days, a giant woman sculpture called “Die Badende” (“The Bather”) graced the lake, making it the world's biggest bathtub.
She rises 13 feet out of the water, stretches 67 feet long and weighs more than 2 tons of styrofoam-and-steel sculpture.
Created by German sculptor Oliver Voss, “Die Badende” was in reality an advertisement for British beauty products company Soap & Glory to promote the “art” of bathing.

Many tourists were awestruck by the aquatic sculpture, that showed the woman's head and knees if she were soaking in a bathtub.
“The Bather” was lifted out of the water on August 12 by a crane. And the company had a giant towel at the ready to dry her off. Good thing, too: one can expect she’d be a bit pruny after her 10-day soak.
