Under the Sea Mermaid Dioramas

When I was a young girl, I used to dream of being a mermaid. That dream lives on in my "Under the Sea" mermaid dioramas. I have such fun creating imaginative scenes of what it must be like to be a mermaid, deep under the ocean, with all the sea animals as her friends. Here you will find a selection of my favorite 3-D "Under the Sea" dioramas.

 

You might wonder what exactly a diorama is.....According to Wikipedia, the word "diorama" originated in 1823 as a type of picture-viewing device, from the French in 1822. The word literally means "through that which is seen", from the Greek di- "through" + orama "that which is seen, a sight".

Under several thick layers of resin, these mixed-media pieces feature my mermaid illustrations, unique elements & ephemera, hand-drawn and hand-painted embellishments, hand-made and distressed wood frames with beautiful hand-painted ceramic & metal knobs as accents on the frames. No two dioramas are ever the same. Each scene is available in many sizes. Made with great attention to detail and love, these are labor-intensive and built layer by layer. Each layer has elements that cast shadows within the diorama which is so fun to see! Please allow 2 weeks before shipment as I make these upon order especially for you. Signed and titled on the back.

Hanging hardware is installed so these pieces are ready to hang.
