The Sugarloaf Mountain Mermaid

The Sugarloaf Mountain Mermaid statue

The sculpture is named “Guanabara Mitológica” and was sculpted by Remo Bernucci. A plaque by the statue reads:

Rio (Mythological Guanabara)
by Remo Bernucci
The Skin – the waves of the sea;
The curved waist – the beaches;
The breast – the mountains;
The hair – the forest;
The silhouette – the gracefulness of the carioca woman;
And at the feet of the statue the ibis.
