Our Mermaid is inspired by Parthenope’s legend, daughter of the god Achelous and the Muse Terpsichore. The greek legend tells that she cast herself into the sea and drowned when her songs failed to entice Ulysses (the hero of the Odyssey.) Her body washed ashore at Naples on the island of Megaride where the Castel dell’Ovo is now located. When people from the city of Cumae settled there, they worshiped her like a Goddess and named their city Parthenope in her honor.
Available in gold, silver and many different versions.
