“Krystyna Krahelska, a student of ethnography at the University of Warsaw, posed for the work on the head and body of the Nitschowa’s Mermaid. She was a cousin of Wanda Krahelska-Filipowicz, a friend of the sculptor. Nitschowa (she/her) described Krahelska as “a tall, well-built, strong girl with a Slavic, rather Polish type of beauty”. She accepted the sculptor’s proposal, but did not spread this fact among her friends. She posed for her in a kneeling position, holding a sword in her right hand” 🧜🏻‍♀️🧜🏼‍♀️🧜🏽‍♀️🧜🏾‍♀️🧜🏿‍♀️🧜🏻‍♂️🧜🏼‍♂️🧜🏽‍♂️🧜🏾‍♂️🧜🏿‍♂️
