19 Mermaid Statue in La Baie, Saguenay, Canada

This is Henriette the mermaid. In 2010, artist Jérémie Giles created an interesting folk story about his sculpture. Henriette originally lived near the Magdalen Islands, a small archipelago in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence. She then swam into the St. Lawrence River, up the Saguenay Fjord and into Ha! Ha! Bay. A few feet offshore behind the Fjord Museum, she was tragically struck by lightning and transformed into aluminum.
