This category refers to sculptures that are displayed in public locations as opposed to private locations.
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.
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.
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.
