Mermaids of Earth
“I sat upon a promontory, and heard a mermaid, on a dolphin’s back, uttering such dulcet and harmonious breath, that the rude sea grew civil at her song; and certain stars shot madly from their spheres, to hear the sea-maid’s music.”
– William Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
There are mermaid statues, mermaid sculptures, mermaid paintings, mermaid movies, mermaid stories and fables, poems, legends, books, websites and all kinds of other incredible and beautiful mermaid art. There are professional mermaids swimming in customized mermaid tails, making a living performing as mermaids.
This first-ever World Map of Mermaid Statues shows the location of public art mermaid statues across our planet, in practically every culture. Go ahead and explore. Subscribe to receive the newsletter.
I’m preparing to publish a large colorful book with the best photographs possible of all these public mermaid sculptures – with at least one page dedicated to each mermaid statue. More details coming later.
