The Mermaid on South Padre

She is 3 times larger than life.

If you drive across the JFK Memorial Highway from Corpus Christi to the barrier island called, South Padre Island, you will pass by Treasure Island Golf and Games. That’s where this mermaid reigns.   I used my wide angle to make this image; it allowed me to include both of her castle’s turrets and most of her enormous shell throne.

Would you consider this concrete sculpture to be folk art?
