I came across an interesting and thorough article on the mythology of mermaids today, going back to about 5000 BC. A lot of fascinating details and leads to follow up …
With the gracious help of Samuel Povar and Sunny Oberto, more background story and many beautiful images have been added about the Russian mermaid at Soter Point in Ventura, CA. This mermaid is rapidly becoming a famous tourist attraction.
Thanks to Lynda Durrand and Linda Vass for sending some excellent photos of the Mermaid of the North.
3 more mermaid sculptures have pages now – The Mermaid of The North in Balintore, Scotland, Triton & Nereida in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico and the Mermaid near Dragon’s Head Rock on Jeju, South Korea. Thank you so much to all those contributing with pictures, permissions to use their photos, and information on these sculptures.
Two new mermaid pages went up today – one for a virtually unknown mermaid fountain on Cyprus, and the other for the well-known Sirena de Boca statue in Veracruz, Mexico.
New pages are live for mermaid statues and sculptures in Trafalgar Square, London, in Warsaw’s Old Town Market Square and at the Vistula River in Warsaw. There is a lot of history on all of these.
A gorgeous mermaid in with a butterfly in Marmaris Turkey, and yet another replica of Copenhagen’s The Little Mermaid, this time in Glendale California.
It’s been a couple days since the last post and pages. Surprisingly I found 2 more copies of Edvard Eriksen’s sculpture of The Little Mermaid – one on St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands, and one on the grave of famous Dane Victor Borge, in Greenwich Connecticut. And I added another giant mermaid sculpture […]
A page was added for the Jalakanyaka at Shankumugham Beach in southern India, probably Earth’s largest mermaid.
New pages added for mermaid sculptures in Mazatlan and Salt Lake City.
