PostSubject: The SEA MAIDEN - MERMAID   Mon Oct 15, 2012 11:59 pm

Mermaid is a mystical creature being known for many centuries and till today, mermaid being used as fictional character in movies, books whilst some of mermaid parts believed to have magical effect, example like in east countries, some people will seek the mermaid's tears to be made as the most powerful love potion. other magical contribution of mermaid that its kiss can heal wounds and one of the spiritual guide for animal totems magic.

Mermaid means 'Sea Maiden', is a creature of half woman(torso and head part) and half fish, generally have same size as normal woman. in some countries, they depicted as beautiful creatures, long hair and beautiful face, sometimes wearing seashells to cover the top or just naked. but others stating it was horrifying ugly with scaly and rough skin. there is a male version of this creature called merman but they are not commonly told or mentioning in legends and tales like mermaids does.

countless legends and stories of Mermaid can be found coming from all around the world, where some of them bring bad aspect of mermaid like the one famous example of the 'bad stories' is about mermaids being a seducing creatures whom luring men to jump into the sea and drowning the victims to death. the mermaid doing this by singing their haunting song. This belief reinforced by the medieval Church, to which Mermaids were an emblem of vanity, lust and the spiritual perils of women and of sexuality. in other stories, mermaids have powers to caused storm and shipwreck making sailors feels fear and being extremely careful not to encounter mermaid in their journey.

the good stories usually describe mermaid as gently creatures whom help lost sailors on the sea to find right direction, as well as save drowning people and return them safely to land. ancients cultures treat mermaid as semi divine goddess of the sea, being worshiped and honored at the seaside temples. even the pirates usually have a mermaid statue hung or carved to their sailing ship, as a symbol of pride, power and luck.

the origins of mermaid is an interesting subject. it is believed Mermaid evolved from Manatees and Dugon, where both have humanly facial appearance(hand like flippers), breast feeding their kids like humans as well swimming like a mermaid. these creatures believed to be serenia or moon species and till today, this is the most popular or acceptable theory among people.

earliest history of mermaid sight seeing documented by Columbus, Philny and beastiary Physiologus while they are sailing in the oceans. although many reports of seeing this creature keep coming till today, most of them is a totally made up, lies or mistakes of seeeing other sea creatures like dolphin and claimed it to be one.

Interesting read!

I've always been fascinated with the idea of these hybrid-type mystical creatures, especially the Centaur (from Greek mythology).

Also, when it comes to mermen, let's not forget about the ever-so-famous Roman god of the sea, King Neptune! Cool

It's a rare deformity know as Sirenomelia. The legs are fused together, thus giving them that mermaid tail-like appearance. If I recall correctly, it is found in 1 out of every 100,000 births worldwide.

And I believe you might be referring to this child, as her story became quite widespread:

Interestingly, the actual Roman god, known simply as Neptune, is depicted in many ancient mosaics and statues as having human legs, as opposed to having a mermaid tail, and is usually being drawn by hippocamps (sea-horses).

His Greek god counterpart is Poseidon, by the way. Wink
