The Mermaid

I found this statue (several years ago now), hanging around outside the caves at Wookey Hole.

The Disney adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s “the Little Mermaid” removed quite a lot of the original tale… I mean they left out the scene where Ariel’s tongue is cut out, or when she stabs the prince to death!

I don’t know if this mermaid still has her tongue?
