    The Nanas are fictional characters created by Nikki de Saint Phalle, who became very famous for them.

    The famous Nanas by Niki de Saint Phalle are enthroned on the banks of the Leine. Once controversial, the three "buxom ladies" have long been one of the city's most popular photo motifs.
    Expansive curves, bright colors: since 1974 the three Nanas Sophie, Charlotte and Caroline (namesake women were Electress Sophie, Charlotte Buff and Caroline Herschel) on Leibnizufer have been among the most sought-after motifs in the streets of Hanover. The voluminous sculptures by the artist Niki de Saint Phalle were initially a thorn in the side of many citizens. The protest was followed by an intensive discussion about art in public space - with a happy ending: the Hanoverians have long since grown fond of their “buxom women”. And in 2000 the artist was made an honorary citizen.
