Schule Donavich explains that he made the Mermaid Statue supposedly to resemble Martha. However, it was not fully completed due to the lack of one of Martha's scales. Martha admits that when the artist asked her to pose, he wanted a scale. Once Link obtains a scale by returning Martha's necklace to its rightful owner, he can go to the statue and complete the statue with it. The statue then moves aside to reveal a secret passage, which leads to the Magnifying Lens.
