Folk Art Mirrored Mermaid

Wood, paint, plaster, mirror slivers
Circa: 1920-1930
Size: 40 1/2" (h) x 15" (w) x 8 1/2" (d)
A mysterious fish-tailed figure constructed of plywood and inlaid with hundreds of mirror slivers. The head is irregularly shaped, more fish or alien than human. But, the body is slender and anthropomorphic with broad shoulders and thin arms. A wave at the base makes it look as if the figure is emerging from the water.

Though its original purpose or creator has been lost to time, it remains a compelling and beautiful sculpture.
