The mermaid statue was created by sculptor Giorgos Xenoulis of Athens, who also created the mermaid statue on Syros.

Mermaids have a long history in Greece, going back to the Sirens and the Nereids in Greek Mythology.   The Nereids were sea nymphs or mermaids, and were daughters of Nereus, oldest son of Pontus (The Sea) and Gaia (The Earth), and grandfather of the hero Achilles.
