To help celebrate Splash Into Summer’s 4th year, I’m guest posting over at A Backwards Story. I decided I should post here as well since there are so many amazing mermaid statues around the world to share!
It’s a pretty well-known fact among my friends that I love all things mer. As they traveled this summer, they sent me some pretty awesome pictures. I absolutely love that so many “local” places feature mermaids too. You don’t have to be near the sea to appreciate the lure of a siren!
While this one is something I found on the net, I still think it’s worth showing. It’s one of my favorite statues. One of the things I love the most about this statue is that it not only has a mermaid, but it also features a MERMAN. Thanks to kuriositas.com for providing the picture.
2. Okinawa, Japan
My grandfather was stationed in Okinawa many years ago during his service in the Coast Guard. While I’m pretty sure this statue wasn’t there at that time, I’m glad it is now! You can find this lovely lady on Moon Beach. Thanks to mermaidsofearth.com for the image.
3. London, England
Tea, crumpets, royal baby, mermaids? Sounds like your typical trip to England, right? One of the fountains in Trafalgar Square features a prettyfierce mermaid.
Want another reason to visit NYC? How about a mermaid spotting inland? Thanks to my aunt (who lives on her own island in NY) for finding this for me. You can find this statue in Fountain Square at Larchmont Manor.
