The incredibly detailed statue, named “Porcelina”, is around 54″ x 72″ in size, and she’s a one-off piece, so she’s entirely one of a kind. Every inch of her body has been lovingly painted, from the glittering pearls that thread through her hair, to the iconic Blue Willow porcelain pattern on her tail.
With her striking blue eyes and cheeky expression, she would certainly make an impression wherever she ends up. Since she’s made from plaster, paint, and foam composite, an indoor location would suit her best, but she can be varnished for carefully managed outdoor use.
And since Jasmine is organising a new art show in the same space – they’re very keen to find her a new owner!
Originally, this beautiful lady came with an $18K price tag for a new private owner! But Jasmine is now looking for somewhere the mermaid statue can be donated so it can remain open to the public. She is looking for somewhere in the LA area, and isn’t asking for money – just for her name and website to accompany the installation in its new home. If you know somewhere that might be perfect, please email Jasmine at JasmineToad@aol.com.
Although we’re all a bit heartbroken Porcelina can’t come home with us, you can buy her likeness as a much more reasonably priced glossy photo print or canvas here, or order a unique Porcelina enamel pin here.
What do you think – would you have put in an offer for this unique 54” giant mermaid statue?
