Havis Amanda by night, Helsinki

Havis Amanda by night, Helsinki

Havis Amanda is a nude female statue in Helsinki, Finland. You can’t really see the statue, but it is where the sea lions are. It is known as the most beautiful piece of art in Helsinki, though it has had many critizism from several sectors due to its sexual objectification. It was sculpted in Paris in 1906 by Ville Vallgren, and in 1908 it was moved to its current location. On the left of the card, the City Hall can be observed. Thanks to Paulina for the card.
