Treasures of the Mermaid
Shipwrecks are common in the ocean, but this one left a treasure chest of jewels on the sea bottom. A mermaid has found it, and may adorn herself with some of the treasure within. Or she may leave it for another of her kind, perhaps choosing only a single piece as a keepsake.
Treasures of the Mermaid is made of cotton fabrics, with a painted and sculpted face. Her hair is a wig of hand-dyed mohair, her tail and flukes are foiled, her "seaweed" accents are singed organza. The base is a 6" diameter wood slice, embellished with sand, seashells and seastars; the treasure chest is a wood finding, embellished with faux pearls and costume jewelry. The mermaid sits about 11" tall. One of a kind.
