The Fisherman & The Mermaid
The Fisherman & The Mermaid are sold and are in a private collection
"Early one cold misty morning, a young fisherman made his way down to the shore to check his nets and lobster pots. Sitting upon a slippery rock, he hauled his catch from the artic waters, where much to his dismay he found a beautiful sea maiden tangled amongst the tight fibres of his net, her wet skin icey as he held her, limp and pallid in his arms..."
Both figures are sculpted over a strong wire armature with a custom blend of polymer clays.
After being baked according to the manufacturers specifications, they were painted with thin layers of Genesis heat set paints.
Eyes were hand painted, and the mohair and wenslydale hair were applied lock by lock.
The rock base is mixed media. It contains several small rock pools.
Both figures are removable from their rock base, but are not removable from each other.
The entire piece including the rock measures just under 8 inches high.
