Mermaid -- The Jackson's Place Series

 

I was inspired to create this Mermaid as part of the Jackson's place series based on the history and culture of New Orleans. I think angels and mermaids are very simiilar.  While neither are readily available to our sight, they are both documented by credible sources leaving it up to the individual on whether or not we choose to believe in them. Angels are documented as being helpful and good, while mermaids are documented as being mischievous and nearing evil. So, I find Angels and Mermaids to be the Ying and Yang of the the mostly female human form.  Angels dominate the skies and the mermaids dominate the seas and the ocean waters.  

 

This piece is approximately 8 1/2" x 9 3/4" or 80 sq in.  It is made of hand-sculpted, kiln-fired clay which has been glazed and kiln fired again. Handmade tile is adhered to cement board. Black grout. A sturdy, black, powdered coated metal frame has a hanging bracket to make installation easy. This piece can be installed inside or outside.
