The modern mermaid has discarded her traditional mirror in favour of her 3G WAP phone, this way she can trawl the Net and surf to her heart's content without being caught by a fisherman or washed away by the tides. Carved from the sound end of an old oak gatepost, approximately 18in x 6in x 6in  she is finished in Danish Oil and suitable for indoors or outdoors.

In her hand she holds her mobile phone, the numbers are marked using a pyrography pen.

The starfish is textured using various sized punches, its tentacles cut with a V tool.

A large crab with serrated claws lies on the rock above her.

Limpets cling in a crevice, seaweed hangs from above.
