This cob sculpture is in front of a home on 21st and SE Madison, in Portland, Oregon, and is called “The Lighthouse”. It was designed and built by a team of cob builders in Portland. According to their site, the mosaic artist is Natalia Palito, and (i think) the mermaid is modeled after a woman who lives in the house. She’s not, as some of my friends thought, modeled after me 🙂

Thank you so much for sharing your photos & the added info Sarah. I agree with your friends she does look a lot like you & just have to say your children are adorable! 🙂
