Hans Peder Pedersen-Dan (1859–1939) was a Danish sculptor.
Early life and education
Back in Denmark, Pedersen-Dans created a number of well-known sculptures. These include the Little Horn-Blower at City Hall Square in Copenhagen (bronze, 1899), the four granite elephants of the Elephant Gate at the Ny Carlsberg brewery in Valby (1901) and a statue of Ogier the Dane for the romantic gardens at Marienlyst House (bronze 1907). The latter was later re-cast in artificial stone at placed in the dungeons underneath Kronborg Castle.
Pedersen-Dan was married to Johanne Pedersen-Dan (1860–1934) who was an actress before she also turned to sculpturing, in 1888, training under Stephan Sinding. The couple adopted a girl, Rigmor. They lived in Hvirovre Rytterskole in Hvidovre from 1912.
