Perhaps she lived happily ever after?

A 1761 news story recounting the beaching of a mermaid in southern Brittany

From the always compelling storyteller Bon Repos Gites: Bonjour from Brittany.

“As soon as it saw her, it stood straight and leaned on both hands. She called her companion, who being armed with a dart, pushed it into the heart of the beast, which made a moan similar to that of a person. Both girls cut off its hands, which had well-formed fingers and nails with fins between the fingers. The island’s doctor was called and he reported that this sea monster was the size of the biggest man we can imagine; that its skin was white, of a colour like the flesh of a drowned man; it had a very well formed female breast, a flattened nose, a large mouth whose chin was adorned with a species of beard formed of delicate scales and that it had similar scattered clumps all over. Its tail was that of a fish and at the end there were a kind of feet.”

Ever wanted to haunt somebody else’s dreams?

There is something seriously creepy, eerie and wrong about the colour palette of this art, the floating ghostly figures also lend this art a psychological horror vibe. Although I searched long and hard for it….I couldn’t find who the original artist is who created this, which lends even more of a mysterious vibe of it!
