This mermaid by Natascha Alexandrova Jusopov was created in 1965 and is also known as Sirene du Lac (Mermaid of the Lake). She is located just off the southeast shore of Lake Geneva, in Collonge-Bellerive, next to a small park fittingly called Plage de la Nymphe (Mermaid Beach). map
The mermaid statue is showing signs of weathering, having been exposed to the elements for more than 55 years, but it is unmistakably a mermaid. The park is a popular bathing spot, with steps leading straight down into the water.
Natascha Jusopov also created the Lorelei in Germany and the mother-with-child mermaid in Beaulieu-sur-Mer in France.
