Very shapely mermaids.
Picturit: I knew you would notice, Ray.... wink
Astrid.
A wonderful thing to come across - commemorating anything? Or just there to happen upon and enjoy?
Picturit: Thank you, Elizabeth. Not that I am aware of, it is situated near the waterway into Oslo.
Astrid.
the two on the right seem to be engaged in very normal conversation while the one on the left is... brushing her hair?
Picturit: I think you are right, Ayush. Maybe she came back from a swim and had some jellyfish in her hair wink
Astrid.
The three mermaids in Drøbak, Norway! I bet they're singing loud Hallelujahs after all those Olympic Medals!
Picturit: I think you are right, Ginnie. They should be proud on what they did. Amazing, only 5 million people....

The word "disporting" comes to mind, Astrid
Picturit: I had to look up the word, I think you might be right here, Lisl.

Now they might be cold - it is very cold here, too. A nice image!
Picturit: I think they are used to the cold wink...
Thank you, Philine.

A great location for this sculpture. It looks well executed as they look almost alive and frolicking on the sea shore.
Picturit: This is a great location for those sculptures. Almost life-seize and with much details. They fit the surroundings.

I wonder if they get goose pimples in the cold... A very social group.
Picturit: I think I saw 6 goose-pimples, Louis. There was a cold wind...
I heard that mermaids are very social wink
Astrid.
The way the left hand one is sitting makes one think of the saying 'two's company, three's a crowd'
Picturit: Brain, I had to agree with you, three is a crowd and I wonder what they do when nobody is looking...
Astrid.
Getting a bit of sun is always good.
Picturit: I hope they use a sun-block... you never know these days.

belle sculpture de ces sirènes Astrid

bon début de la semaine
Picturit: Dank je wel, Willy. Dit was erg knap gemaakt en staat op een mooie plek.
De maandag is weer voorbij..... voor dat je het weet is het donderdag en maart....
Een prettige avond.
Astrid.
I thought the little mermaid was only from Copenhagen, but I see that there are even 3. There is a nice shot.
Picturit: Thank you, Claudio. The little mermaid is real 'little' these mermaids are life-seize and also at a wonderful location.
Astrid.
Built for speed. dream on Grandpa.
Picturit: I think Grandpa would need some super powers to keep up with these three wink
Astrid.
They seem very perky Lady P
Picturit: You did notice too...wink..
Astrid.
Hoe mooi deze verstilde maar toch levendige zeemeerminnen
@ Late, because of grandchildren to stay
Picturit: Dank je wel. Het beeld is levens groot en op een prachtige plek.
Kleinkinderen komen op de 1e plek wink.... Ons eerste kleinkind komt rond eind augustus/begin september.

I think these are quite famous but I can't think of the reason why. I thought that Ray would approve.
Picturit: It is not the little mermaid in Copenhagen. They might be related though wink
Ray and 'female roundings' he will always notice them HA...
Astrid.
this is a beautiful sculpture Astrid... the artist placed them in a natural spot for mermaids....petersmile
Picturit: Thank you, Peter. I think they did well indeed about the placement of the sculpture.

Picturit: Thank you, Cherry. This sculpture is so wonderful made and on the perfect spot. we were lucky with the sun that day.
Astrid.
Curvy...
Oh gosh...I could spend hours photographing these girls from various perspectives! Nice!
Picturit: We did too and we kept walking around it. From all sides this was perfection.
Astrid.
