Angels or mermaids?

This is a very grumpy angel, he does not look happy or divine at all. ;-) But that is just the way I like my angels! This I found in the beautiful old church in Kalmar, Sweden.

Some of the other old angels in the church looked like mermaids, maybe because of the city being so close to the sea?

I love sculptures like this, many hundred years old and still making people reflect upon their life and death.
