37 weeks and 5 days (after Lotte Reiniger and the Fairy Tale films)
…«See, now it is your turn! says the grandmother, the old dowager queen. “Come now, let me adorn you just like your sisters”. And she put a wreath of white lilies on her hair. But each flower petal was half a pearl. And the old queen had eight oysters squeeze themselves tightly to the princess´tail to who her hight rank.
“It hurts so much!” said the little mermaid,
“Yes, you must suffer a bit to look pretty!” said the old queen.
Oh, how happy she would have been to shake off all this magnificence, to take off the heavy wreath…»
(Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid)
