Mermaid Backyard Water Fountains
I even have Triton Fountains for a more masculine water feature. The definition if a triton is from Greek Mythology, a god of the sea, son of Poseidon and Amphitrite, portrayed as having the head and trunk of a man and the tail of a fish, he is also called Merman. He may not like it but lets jut call him a male version of a mermaid or mermaid man.
We as a human race have always been intrigued with mermaids dating back to 1000 bc with tales of sightings and encounters with these mystical creatures of beauty and grace yet know to have a mischievous side to them.
By having backyard water fountains as mermaids, or having that mermaid on a rock spouting water will bring that mysterious beauty form the ocean into your tropical garden and create a look and feel that may surprise even yourself, some of them look like real mermaids!
A Few Interesting Mermaid Facts
Much like sirens, mermaids would sometimes sing to Sailors to enchant them, distracting them from their work and causing them to walk off the deck or run their ships aground.
Other stories have them squeezing the life out of drowning men while attempting to rescue them.
They are also said to take humans down to their underwater kingdoms.
In Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid it is said that they forget that humans cannot breathe underwater, while others say they drown men out of spite.
Cleaning Your Fountains
I recommend once in a while cleaning your bronze statues with a bronze polish to help preserve your beautiful mermaid water fountain and bring out the beautiful luster of the natural bronze and other materials.
