White Marble Mermaid by Jeff Shetima

$ 1,200.00

An outstanding large white marble mermaid carved by Jeff Shetima with one arm raised to her head - looking to the left side with oval gold-lip and penn shell inlaid eyes. The mermaid has incised hair and fish tail giving both forms dimension and contrasts nicely with the polished face, arms and torso. There are two shells incised over the mermaid's breasts and a spiny oyster sea shell is inlaid to the mermaid's belly button. This is a show stopper and has 2020 incised on the bottom. The mermaid's symbolism is as changeable as the sea itself. In some cultures, the mermaid signifies life and fertility within the ocean. In others, she embodies the destructive nature of the water, luring sailors to their deaths — serving as an omen for storms, unruly seas and disaster.
