Collecting mermaids is a hobby of mine that I greatly enjoy. I guess you could say I have a fascination for these beautiful, mystical sea creatures. My collection of mermaids continues to grow and includes mermaid statues, mermaid dolls, hand-crafted mermaid jewelry, mermaid art, mermaid lamps, mermaid fountains, mermaid wall plaques, and just about anything I can find that is a mermaid collectible.
Mythology of Mermaids and Mermen
According to legends, a mermaid is an aquatic creature with the head and torso of human female and the tail of a fish, always wearing long beautiful hair. She can be found in seas and lakes, or lying on a rock and combing her hair with one hand while holding a mirror in the other.
Mermaids were once believes to foretell the future, sometimes under compulsion; give supernatural powers to human beings; or fall in love with human beings and entice their mortal lovers to follow them beneath the sea. In Hans Christian Andersen's book, The Little Mermaid, it is said that Mermaids forget that humans cannot breathe underwater, while others say they drown men out of spite.
The idea of mermaids and mermen, the male equivalent, are based on creatures from Greek and Babylonian mythology: Sirens and Tritons of the Greeks, and the fish gods, who were half human and half fish, from the Babylonians.
