Wooden Mermaid

Nine feet tall, carved in the 1980s by local chainsaw artist Fred Bero. She originally sat in a little park next to the Long Beach Tavern, but is now the mascot of the Mermaid Inn.

Her bulky physique has been mocked by predictable body shamers, but mermaids have to be strong to swim in the sea.
