NARRAGANSETT MERMAID50" long x 41" high x 6" deep
The idea for this carving came from an antique example of an "Indian mermaid" weathervane that was much smaller and different in form. But the concept was intriguing and typical of the kind of creativity and exuberance that defines the very best of American folk art. Here, the artist combines several well known examples of early American mermaids and enlarges it to create a beautiful statement of power and grace.
