Mermaids are legendary creatures of the sea. The head and upper body are of a female human with the tail of a fish. Mermaid is a compound of old English – merely meaning sea and maid, being a young woman.
Mermaids are a part of worldwide culture! Sightings of mermaids have been recorded over many centuries. Are they a myth or true?
The first known story was that of goddess Atargatis of Assyria that transferred herself into a mermaid out of shame from accidentally killing her lover.
Mermaids have been popular in both art and literature over many centuries.
The most famous mermaid story that children love is Disney’s The Little Mermaid. It follows the story of mermaid Ariel who falls in love with a Prince and wants to be a human, as to be with her true love.
I have recently purchased vintage wall mermaids! I have wanted to get some for such a long time as I adore them, but I waited to get the perfect set to match my bathroom decor.
