Mermaids

I am fascinated by the idea of these legendary aquatic creatures.
 I made those a while ago, I have shown them here before. 
 They inspire pitty...
 romance....
 fear...
 They are sure very misterious.
  It is fascinating that these sea creatures have been talked about for thousands of years and show up in the writings of numerous cultures,even among cultures that had no contact with each other.
 Sir Arthur Conan Doyle believed in fairies and he was an intelligent, well-educated man, as well as the creator of Sherlock Holmes.
 Christofer Columbus reported seeing mermaids while exploring the Caribbean, and sightings have been reported in the 20th and 21st centuries in Canada, Israel, and Zimbabwe. 
 They can also be incredibly kitsch, but I still like them.
