Not For Sale
In this mermaid, I have chosen not to create an erotic beguiling creature that beckons. I
chose the archetype of the mermaid because it reminds us that we emerged from the sea, that our bodies are made from water. Before birth, we are grown in salty water of our mother’s womb before we emerge onto the earth and into the air to breathe. Also, I chose the mermaid archetype for her symbolic duality. A mermaid is half woman half fish. She is half wild and half “civilized”. She is Nature and Nurture.
