This mermaid is found just outside the ferry terminal in Bastia, on the northeast side of Corsica, France. map
This mermaid sculpture was created by the Italian-French sculptor Gabriel Diana in 2002.
The mermaid is made in bronze, and is seated on a rock of raw marble, between two large propeller blades (from a propeller whose third blade was damaged in this harbor).
In a sense the mermaid is like the pearl in a half open oyster. The sculpture is just over 8' tall.
She is a sister sculpture to the mermaid in Ile Rousse.
