  • Mermaids of folklore dating back to the time of Odysseus enchant sailors with their beautiful music. Is this gal a little bit country, or a little bit rock 'n' roll?

  • It's easy to hang your sculpture with just a few nails. Place the first nail within two design elements that are touching or notched. Then use a second and possibly a third nail, if the sculpture is large, to straighten and secure the piece against the wall. Just make sure that you don't place a nail in an eye or a mouth. A viewer's attention will go there quite naturally and therefore, directly to the nail. You don't want that!

  • This sculpture has been treated with a weather-proof coating. Over time, however, the coating will wear away and rusting will occur. Rust is not necessarily a bad thing. Some people crave a weathered look. Others prefer a glossy finish. If that is you, simply take five minutes once a year to apply a spray-on clear coat enamel.

  • As with all of our sculptures, this mermaid comes to you through fair trade practices.

  • Natural color variation from dark sier to rustic brown tones.

  • The Haitian method of creating sculptures originated over 6o years ago and has changed very little in that time. Outside each workshop are stacked 55 gallon drums, waiting to be prepared. Apprentice artists and laborers cut off the tops and bot of the drums, fill them with straw and dry banana leaves, and then light them to burn out residues and strengthen the metal. When cooled, the drums are slit down the sides, pried apart, pounded flat with mallets, and vigorously sanded. At this point the artist takes over, chalking his intended design onto the metal. Using a hammer and chisel and other simple tools, the artist undertakes the intricate work of cutting, beading and detailing each piece. When he is finally satisfied with the results, he pounds his signature onto the sculpture and seals it up with a protective finish.
