The Little Mermaid was published by Hans Christian Andersen in 1837. In 1913, Edvard Eriksen was commissioned to sculpt the Little Mermaid. This famous statue depicts the moment her transformation begins into a human form. My sculpture is inspired by Eriksen's timeless masterpiece and captures her perhaps moments before her transformation as her scales have dissolved into skin. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
