The Siren is a sculpture by Norman J. Gitzen in Wellington, Florida. It consists of a 3-metre tall hand-pounded steel and bronze depiction of a mermaid with webbed hands and unusually large breasts. It is part of the village's public art program, which involves 21 artists loaning art work to be displayed in public places. Originally placed outside Wellington Community Centre, it was moved to a new site outside a swimming pool after some complaints about the nudity of the statue. The artist later added nipples to the sculpture's breasts.
