Introduction to Fisher Girl Statue (渔女像)

Facing the beautiful Xianglu Bay, the Fisher Girl Statue is regarded as the signature artwork of Zhuhai. The statue was completed in 1982 as the first seaside statue in China. It is made of 10-ton granite stone and with a height of 8.7 meters. With a graceful posture and adorning with a beautiful necklace, the fisher girl holds a shining pearl up in the air with happy and elegant expression. 

There is a legend about the Fisher Girl. The daughter of Dragon King from the South China Sea was attracted by the fantastic scenery in Xianglu Bay, and she decided to stay there as a common fisher girl. Gradually, she fell in love with an honest and warm-hearted man called Hai Peng. Hai Peng wanted her magical bracelet as a token of her love because of a slanderous talk, and then she gave it to him. However, without this bracelet, the fisher girl would be destined to loose her immortality and life. 

After the death of Fisher Girl, Hai Peng deeply regretted and he decided to bring her back to life. He eventually found a kind of herb that could help people to repossess the life. But he needed to water the herb with his own blood every day to help the herb grow up. Fortunately, the fisher girl regained her life in the end. IT was great that they then lived in a happy life.
