Beautiful Monster

Mermaid lore is fascinating. Beautiful creatures, or dangerous monsters?

Today's article on mermaid lore is from BHL, the Biodiversity Heritage Library. The lengthy article is a great read, and the photos are pleniful.

"The myth of a marine human extends as far back as 5,000 BCE, when the Babylonians worshipped a fish-tailed god named Oannes."

In addition to Oannes, you will meet the Tritons, the Sea Satyr, and the Monk Fish.

Be sure to explore the other blog posts at BHL. There are articles back to 2007.

Music by Tei Shi 

Billed as music for mermaids, I-D Magazine presents vocalist Tei Shi (Valerie Teisher), a New York based singer originally from Buenos Aires.

Learn all about Tei Shi and her beautiful music in this article by Clarke Rudick. Then, head on over to Sound Cloud and have a listen.

Best wishes and starfishes,
