Mermaid Statue.


The legend of the half-human, half-fish mermaid originates from Syria around 1000 BC. The Syrian fertility goddess Atargatis dove into a lake to become a fish. The gods would not allow her to give up her great beauty and only her bottom half was transformed. Mermaids have also been associated with sirens. These creatures would lure sailors to their doom with their voices and beauty. Some historical sightings of sirens and mermaids have been attributed to mistaking manatees and dugongs for these mythical creatures.

 

Material: Ceramic.

 

Size: 16.5 cm high.
