Life-size mermaid statues are often beloved for their beautiful and charismatic appearance. People buy bronze mermaid statues and place them in their gardens, next to fountains, or by the sea as decorative items. Some people put it in the open outdoors as a landmark. So how much do you know about the life-size Mermaid statue? Today let’s explore the knowledge related to mermaids.
What Is A Mermaid?
Mermaids are creatures in ancient legends, mentioned in Chinese, Japanese, and even ancient Greek legends, and are usually depicted as a humanoid with an upper body and a fish with a lower body. One of the earliest life-size mermaid legends appeared in Syria around 1000 BC. It is said that the goddess Atargatis fell in love with a mortal, but she accidentally killed him. In shame, she jumped into the lake. Because the gods there did not allow her to give up her beauty, only her lower body became a fish, while her upper body remained humanoid.
What does a mermaid symbolize?
Mermaids have contradictory symbolism. This is because, in sailor folklore, mermaids represent both luck and disaster. On the one hand, she is often seen near ships at sea, seducing sailors with her attractive and sexy appearance, and dragging them into the sea to die. Or she would summon a storm that would kill the ship and its sailors at sea.
On the other hand, mermaids are popular among sailors. They believe that mermaids are beautiful, intelligent, kind, could withstand natural disasters, ensure good weather and help them find a safe way back to land.
In contemporary times, the image of mermaids has been adopted by the transgender youth network Mermaids UK. This organization was created in 1995 to support transgender and/or gender-diverse children and youth. Since mermaids have no reproductive organs, their gender is irrelevant, which provides a powerful symbol for the community. The ‘Person of the Sea’ statue was created by Eve Shepard after two years of working with transgender and gender-diverse youth at the UK’s Mermaid Museum.
Where is the famous mermaid statue?
The famous Little Mermaid statue is located in Copenhagen, Denmark. This is a bronze mermaid statue created by Edward Eriksson based on the Danish writer Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale of the same name. This statue commemorates the sad little Andersen story of the mermaid who gave up everything for the hopeless love of the prince. This mermaid outdoor decor has become a Copenhagen icon.
What are the advantages of a bronze mermaid statue?
