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 frame with beautiful hand-painted ceramic & metal knobs as accents on the frames. No two dioramas are ever the same. The one shown here (in size 12"x12") is a not the exact one you will receive. Each diorama is handmade upon order, and as such, embellishments, ephemera and unique touches will vary per piece, though the illustration of the mermaid you see here will stay the same. If the knob shown is not available any longer I will choose one similar to what is shown. Made with great attention to detail and love. 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 right out of the box. Free shipping within the United States! ~ℙ𝕖𝕒𝕔𝕖, 𝕃𝕠𝕧𝕖 & 𝕄𝕖𝕣𝕞𝕒𝕚𝕕𝕤 ✿♥
