Fisher Girl Statue
Facing beautiful Xianglu Bay, the Fisher Girl statue is regarded as the signature artwork of Zhuhai. It is made of 10-ton granite stone, 8.7 meters high. With a graceful posture and adorned with a beautiful necklace, the fisher girl holds a shining pearl up in the air, a face both happy and shy.
The statue was completed in autumn 1982. It was China’s first seaside statue. In 2005, the government issued a set of envelops called “beautiful Zhuhai”, on which a picture of the Fisher Girl Statue is drawn.
There is a legend surrounding the Fisher Girl. The daughter of the Southern Sea Dragon King 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 good-natured man called Hai Peng. Hai Peng wanted her magical bracelet as a token of her love, which she then gave. However, without this bracelet, the fisher girl would be destined to loose her immortality and die.
Hai deeply regretted this and he decided to try to bring her back to life. He eventually found an herb that could help people to repossess the living. Everyday he watered the herb with his own blood and in the end; the fisher girl regained her life. They then lived happily ever after.
