More Mermaid statues in England

Southport's Mermaid Statue

Southport’s Mermaid Statue

It was a day for mermaid statues in England:

More information was gotten on the mermaid statue in Lancashire – which may or may not actually be a mermaid statue.  Still investigating.

The Hensley mermaid to be installed on the Red Lion Hotel Lawn was reported.  I am getting more data on this as well.

Lastly, I found photos of a mermaid statue in Southport – near Manchester, and was able to find and get permission to use 3 photos of it.

Hensley (UK) to get a mermaid statue

Another town in England is adding a mermaid statue to beautify the city and promote art.   Read the article here.   Hensley is 20 or so miles east of London.

They plan to replace the statue every few years, selling the statue to a local business or other institution.  It is a great way to promote the arts.

SculptureWalkI recently visited Sioux Falls in  South Dakota, and saw their Sculpture Trail, which works on a similar idea – exhibiting sculptures in public for a year or more, then selling them and replacing them with other works.

Mermaids of Earth and Maine Mermaid statue in the news

Quoddy Tides Article 2012 11 23Well, there’s an unexpected twist – my book on Mermaids of Earth, which is still being written and about half done, is already mentioned in the news.

The Quoddy Tides in Maine is reporting on the production of a mermaid statue for the city of Eastport by sculptor Richard Klyver, who mentioned to them that his statue will be included in my book.

I’ll take that as an excellent start on the book’s marketing.

Click at left or here for the article.

New site theme, new mermaid pages

Well, it has been a busy two weeks, getting the Mermaids Of Earth website fully re-engineered with a new look and theme, while still getting up some new mermaid sculpture pages.

Any and all feedback on the new look is appreciated.

Today a page was added for the sculpture of Miranda, The Dartmouth Mermaid.

Two days ago we added a page for the Mermaid Monument in Espirito Santo, Brazil.

Last week we added the mermaid sculpture in Cayucos, California.

And the prior week we added pages for mermaid sculptures in Baden (Austria), Salado (Texas), Navy HQ in Brazil, San Angelo (Texas), Ganges (British Columbia, Canada) and Sugar Loaf Mountain in Rio de Janeiro.

So there is much to look at.

17 Mermaid sculptures online now

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 in India – the one on Kollam Beach.

Also a couple other mermaid statues were found, that have been added to the list of future mermaid pages.   It is pretty amazing how many places have mermaid statues.
