Artist's Description

With Feathers All Tattered and Brown. . . The Other Birds in so many words, said Quack, Get Out of Town…."
From the MGM fairy tale movie with Danny Kaye (1953) directed by Charles Vidor, written by Moss Hart, Myles Connoly and Ben Hect. It wasn’t the true story of HCAndersen’s life, but as it child,it made me think I knew him.

He made rags to riches stories seem possible and it made me root for the underdogs. He also taught us beauty comes from within. He was born in the city Odense in Denmark April 2, 1805 – died August 4, 1875

Scandinavian Heritage Center, Minot, North Dakota

Shari Hamilton was the sculptor. It was dedicated on October 5, 2004 during and unveiling ceremony attended by representatives of the five Scandinavian countries.
