Photographer's Note

Bu denizkızı, düşlerini süsleyen cennete erişebilmek için, nice engin denizler, ufuklar aştı… Kıtalar, adalar, koylar dolaştı… Ta ki GÖKOVA’ya ulaşana kadar.”

Sözler Sadun Boro’nun, heykel Tankut Öktem’in. Sadun Boro. Okluk koyu girişindeki bu kayalığın üzerine yerleştirttiği bu heykeli, dünyanın en güzel sularına, 1993 yılında Gökova körfezine armağan etmiş.




There is a surprise to the sailors on their approach to the ‘Okluk Koyu’ or ‘English Harbor’ during their ‘Gökova Bay’ tours: A beautiful mermaid sitting on a rock in the sea. The sculpture is a gift from Sadun Boro, to his beloved Gökova Bay, sculpted by the artist Tankut Öktem, who is actually Sadun Boro’s one of friends. Sadun Boro is the first Turk who sailed around the world through the years 1965 to 1968, with his 10.5 mts sailing boat, with his dear wife Oda Boro. After many other trips and sailings for many years, this wise and interesting man now lives in Gökova Bay, and mostly in his boat.

The writing on the sculpture says: ‘This mermaid, inorder to reach to the paradise in her dreams, has travelled over a huge sea, crossed the oceans and horizons… She went through continents, islands and coves… Until she got to GÖKOVA…’
