Mermaids and Whale Maiden
Previously posted on July 29, 2009 by Whale Maiden
When I ‘google’ “Whale Maiden,” I come across many entries to whaling missions, and to mermaids. And that is fine. (More recently, by blog has shown up when I google it, too.) I didn’t get the name Whale Maiden because of an interest in whaling, nor of an interest in mermaids. I do enjoy the works of Hans Christian Andersen (and the variations picked up by Disney, and the others,) and so with all that in mind …
I picked up the July 27 Wall Street Journal and found on page A-1, “In a Mermaid Statue, Danes Find Something Rotten in the State of Michigan.” Here is a link which I think will take us to the article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124865622123982685.html
The article is about concerns about copyright infringement of the Danish artist of the statue. In print the article is illustrated with lovely drawings of the mermaid statue. On line, there are photographs of the statue.
