The Statues section of the site is dedicated to the surprisingly large number of mermaid sculptures around us, both in public places and private collections, all over the world. Some are astoundingly beautiful, and many have a story out of legend or folk lore, or a great story on how they came to be.
I am collecting excellent photos on these, data on who created them, why they are where they are, when they were created, the stories or legends that inspired them, and of course exactly where they are located – if available to the public – so they can easily be visited.
Additionally I am preparing a large full-color book about mermaid statues and sculptures available to the public – the Mermaids of Earth – which I plan to publish in the spring of 2013.
This website also has a wealth of information about mermaid tails, mermaid costumes, mermaid dresses, mermaid paintings, figurines, mermaid fountains and all kinds of other mermaid art, mermaid products and mermaid decor.
Mermaids have been portrayed as mystical, dangerous, sensuous, beautiful, alluring, treacherous, longing, beastly, demure, aesthetic and sexy. There are different kinds of mermaids and big differences in how artists conceive their mermaids. This site will show some of the mermaids I have come across, representing all these qualities and more.
