The 'Drunken' Mermaid

By Philip_H
What shall we do?

Part of the fountain on 't Zand, Bruges, Belgium.

The fountain by Stefaan Depuydt and Livia Canestraro (1985- 86) consists of four main sculptural groups: "bathing women" (symbolizing the cities of Bruges, Ghent, Antwerp and Kortrijk), "landscape in Flanders", "the fishermen" (symbolizing the relationship between Bruges and the sea) and "the cyclists."
