Mermaids intrigue me. Do they exist and do they lure lonely sailors to a watery but ecstatic death like in the Odyssey? Do they fall in love with humans like Ariel and the mermaid in the Splash film? The ones in Harry Potter were a particularly mean strain of merpeople.
I have seventeen fish-tailed lovelies in the art section and another five in other parts of the collection.
I’ll start with a particularly lovely joker and mermaid who just this week (11/20) joined us from eBay.
This next one hadn’t even arrived yet but I’ve paid for it on eBay:
ARe there mermaids in other sections of the collection? Yes, there are. There are this pair of mer-people in the juggling section! Aren't they magnificent?
And in the cartoon section, there is the Sea Witch. Ursula!
