Seated on a mysterious shape rising from the water on a dark, starry night, a woman with a full body mermaid tattoo stares into the distance. Sprouting from her back is a wing that is also somewhat like a fin that connects her to the ancient mermaids - who had wings. This piece celebrates the magic and mystery of ancient lore.
