this is amazing

In Edo-period Japan — particularly in the 18th and 19th centuries — mermaid mummies were a common sight at popular sideshow carnivals called misemono. These wildly popular shows featured crafts, acrobats and animals in a kaleidoscopic blend of attractions that were believed to bring luck, fortune and health to the audience. One attraction commonly featured at these shows was the mermaid. Over time, the practice of mermaid mummification blossomed into an art form as fishermen perfected techniques for stitching the heads and upper bodies of monkeys onto the bodies of fish.

The mummy pictured below is a prime example of a carnival mermaid. It appears to consists of fish and other animal parts held together with string and paper.

The mummified creature was obtained by Jan Cock Blomhoff while serving as director of Dejima, the Dutch trading colony at Nagasaki harbor from 1817 to 1824. It now resides at the National Museum of Ethnology in Leiden.

This is a picture that I found online.

I think this is a little mermaid story picture because in the original story her sister gave her a knife to kill the prince and drip the blood on her leg to turn her back. the reason is the prince was going to marry someone else. but she could not go through with it so she jump into the water and turn into seafoam. that is my opinion on the picture.

I think this picture is about a girl that love sea life, and see herself as a mermaid. she probably feels sad see the sea life in the cage.
