Old Primitive Folk Art
Wooden MERMAID Wall Sculptures
MERMAID FIGUREHEAD~MARITIME FOLKLORE
Up for auction are a lovely graceful pair of carved wooden MERMAIDS.
The wood is very light weight and weathered. The paint has been distressed to give the appearance of worn paint, although these lovely mermaids also have the patina of age, as they are vintage and not new.
These proud mermaids have delicate carved facial features, long flowing hair, with hands clasped to their chests in typical figurehead fashion, and carved grooves in the tails, complementing the long carved grooves in their long flowing hair.
Dimensions: Each Mermaid is aproximately 9 inches long & they have a flat back for wall decor.
Each Mermaid is signed with a carved initial or logo on the center back.
The Mermaids are not meant to be identical thus there are variations between the two.
There is a hardware eyelet securely inserted into the center top for hanging. You can adjust your mermaids torso to be more thrust out as one would see on an ancient clipper ship or you can make her more vertical, a common practice when the bows of ships changed, just by tipping the tails up or down depending on your preference.
The mermaid on the right has a small chip off the tip of the tail which is not very noticeable,
or not noticeable at all if hung above a doorway, for example.
