The Hard Bodies Of Copenhagen

4.2.2013

By Andrew Belonsky

The male form is all over this Danish city.

There's no shortage of washboard abs and rock-hard pecs in and around Copenhagen, where replicas of Roman and Grecian sculptural masterpieces mingle on the lawns in ├śrstedsparken and the University of Copehagen's incredible Botanical Garden with original pieces like Carl Rohl-Smith's St. Athanasius at Marble Church.

These pieces all part of this Danish city's vibrant public park and arts culture — the first botanical garden was erected in 1600 in the Old City — and almost everywhere you look there's some adonis to enjoy. So, in this slideshow, we offer a mere sampling of the brazen bronze and well-sculpted clay of Denmark's capital city.
