3D Printed Sculpture - Little Mermaid

BY Eric van Straaten | 27-May-2013
This summer, Teylers Museum, the first and oldest museum in the Netherlands, is organising the first exhibition ever to be held in the Netherlands on the subject of mermaids. The event will bring these mysterious beings to life for young and old in surprising modalities, from paintings to posters, from pictures to stuffed animals, from 'genuine' mermaid skeletons to fairy-tale movies and games.
Venue: Teylers Museum
Date: From 25 May until 15 September 2013

Right around the corner of Teylers Museum, you'll find antique shop De Vries & De Vries, specialized in Dutch and foreign topography, decorative prints and old illustrated books. At De Vries & De Vries, Eric van Straaten exhibits a brand new sculpture that shows a contemporary 'Little Mermaid' passed out on a sunlounger. De Vries & De Vries is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 11.00 - 17.00 and on Saturdays from 13.00 - 17.30
