The Mermaid’s Pool of Kynance Cove, near The Lizard, Cornwall is a place with a legend few visitors discover.
Beautiful secrets set in green granite and with more than one delightful surprise to reward the adventurous.
For those of you curious about mermaids and Cornish legends, your further pleasure, I have updated the page and a bonus, added a ‘further reading’ page : https://artfrickers.com/…/english…/mermaids-pool/
Mermaid’s Pool, available, £1200 €, a painting by Gordon Frickers, 40 x 50 cm (16″ x 20″).
“Mermaid’s Pool”, my choice of name for my painting was not casual.
The enquiry that prompted this?
That came from Simon Young a British folklore historian based in Italy.
He is presently preparing The Boggart: A Study in Shadows for Exeter University Press.
His last book was Magical Folk: British and Irish Fairies: 500 AD to the Present with Ceri Houlbrook (ed), a collection of fairylore essays.
