Feejee Mermaid - Standing

The Science

The "original" Feejee Mermaid was so-named by PT Barnum, although it was probably created in Japan. Made by joining half the corpse of a monkey and half that of a fish, the parts were mummified together so that they appeared to be one creature - a Mermaid! The term "Feejee Mermaid" is used generically to refer to this type of hybrid, and several of these odd pieces of gaffe taxidermy may be found in collections around the world, including Harvard's Peabody Museum.

The Story

This Mermaid has been skillfully sculpted, cast in resin, and carefully hand-finished for the look of a dusty relic. It is sure to add a great ghoulish touch to a cabinet of curiosities, and makes a fantastic gift for the sideshow enthusiast!

    Wonderful specimen

    Posted by Mike on Mar 5th 2022

    My mermaid just arrived today, and I'm very happy with it. I image each one is weathered differently, mine was a bit more greenish dusty than brownish dusty, but that's not a complaint at all; it looks wonderful. Unfortunately, one of the arms was broken off at the shoulder when it arrived, but a drop of rtv silicone and some coffee ground dusted over the crack fixed that right up. It was packed in bubble wrap and packing peanuts,so I'm not sure how that happened it shipping. Even so I recommend this highly.
