Wooden Feejee Mermaid Wall hanging - 1 large & 1 small available

Regular price $95.00 Sale

The Feejee Mermaid was a gaff composed of the torso and head of a juvenile monkey sewn to the back half of a fish.  It was a hoax promoted by P.T. Barnum during the 1840s.  

  • The large mermaid is 22 inches at its longest point and 13 inches at its highest point.
  • The small mermaid is 12 inches at its longest point and 10 inches at its highest point.
  • Both are carved out of MDF wood.

**Note about the wood art

I make these by hand so they are as perfect as I can get them.  I spray paint them and then carve the blank areas out.  Some have slight specs from drying outside.
