Statue of Fisher Girl

The Statue of the Fisher Girl is one of Zhuhai's famous landmarks, located at Xianglu Bay. The Statue of the Fisher Girl is made of granite with 8.7 meters high and 10 tons. The statue depicts a girl holding a pearl high in the air with both hands. The legend of this statue is that there was a fairy maiden, a daughter of the South Sea Dragon King, attracted by the beautiful scenery of Xianglu bay, and decided to descend to the earth so that she could enjoy the entire wonderful scenery. Her father arranged eight mistresses to avoid her escape, and every mistress gave her a bracelet, she would die if she even removed one.

Soon she fell in love with a man named Hai Peng. Not long after, however, he believed some fabricated rumors and asked the girl for the bracelet she wore as proof of her love. Although she knew she would die if the bracelet were removed from her hand, she still presented the bracelet as proof of her deep love. The girl died and the fisherman was bitterly remorseful, crying day and night. An Immortal named Jiuzhou Elder was moved by their love and helped the young man to resuscitate the girl. They offered this huge precious pearl to their benefactor during their marriage ceremony as a token of their appreciation for his kindness.
