This mermaid in the town of Èze on the French Riviera is walking amongst us humans, carrying her mermaid skin and tail over her shoulder.
Èze goes back in time about 4000 years, which makes sense considering the environmental beauty of this area and its views of the Mediterranean Sea. Èze is one of the key tourist attractions on the French Riviera, and is famous for its beauty and charm, and its many shops, art galleries, hotels and restaurants.
The mermaid statue Ama d’Èze fits in perfectly.
Amaryllis created this and many other mermaid statues around the world. The message of this beautiful piece of art is this:
She left her underwater world to connect with mankind and alert us that we are damaging her environment. She wants to explain that water is the cradle of life, the ultimate necessity to assure humanity’s own existence. As she arrives on more and more shorelines, it is our belief that she will gain a louder voice and will help make the point that we must respect her home.
