This large mermaid weathervane made from 1.5mm thick steel which has been treated with a metal phosphate solution to increase the adhesiveness of paint and prevent corrosion. It has then been powder coated with a black polyester paint for a sleek finish.
The polyester paint has a high solid content and therefore adds strength, making the weathervane less susceptible to scratching and chemical cleaning. It is also UV stabilised.
Mermaids appear in folklore throughout many cultures of the world. They are sometimes associated with perilous events, such as floods, storms, drownings and shipwrecks, whilst in other folk traditions they can be benevolent and beneficent, bestowing gifts or rewards.
Part human, part fish they are usually portrayed with the head and upper torso of a beautiful woman with long flowing hair and the tail of a fish, captured perfectly with this weathervane of a mermaid.
