Contest Moderator: 'tacky' is the right term, but not necessarily 'cheap'............ it is to do with design!.............. like a model boat, in bad scale, turned into a table lamp...... that sort of thing. Another word to look at which may help is 'Crass' ( 5 years and 1197 days ago )
adeincyprus: this is an excellent example of 'kitch'.....: http://tomorrowmuseum.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/08/koons-michael-jackson-and-bubbles-1988.jpg ( 5 years and 1197 days ago )

A circa 1960's Fur-rimmed Zebra patterned Hat! No wardrobe should be considered complete without one IMHO...

I quite honestly fold this one up into a cowboy hat and wear it on photo-shoots for young children when I need to get a giggle...it works...and was well worth the $.50 cent investment at the local Salvation Army! (5 years and 1195 days ago)

The Little Mermaid - The National Symbol of Denmark

The little Mermaid sitting at Langelinie in Copenhagen, is one of Denmark's biggest tourist attractions.

The sculpture was put up in 1913, and has since then been the symbol of Denmark. Like the Eiffel tower in Paris and the statue of liberty in New York both have been very important for the two cities, so has the Little Mermaid been important for Copenhagen!
You can see here one in plastic!
