The Giant Mermaid of Cumbernauld


Scotland’s town of Cumbernauld has recently become the proud “host” of a beautiful mermaid statue that seems to be guarding the town’s entrance.

Standing at over 33ft tall, this statue is entirely made out of metal and depicts a beautiful four-armed mermaid, with two of her arms stretched outwards, as if to protect the town, and the other two holding up her mermaid tail.Her name is Arria and she was thought of and designed by English sculptor Andy Scott.

The real spectacle begins at nightfall as the statue features a rig of multicolored lights inside it’s structure that all lit up, putting Arria in a whole new “light”.

The costs for making the statue reached up to around $400,000, but local authorities hope the mermaid will be the town’s lucky charm.

Hello,

Please can the person whom took the fifth image contact me ASAP.

I look after the marketing for Cumbernauld Shopping Centre and we are currently undergoing a branding project in which we would love to use this image.

If you are happy for us to do so please can you email me so that I can arrange this: louise.scott@eu.jll.com I would love to be able to have an answer by Friday 7th March.

Many thanks,
Louise
