This sums up the fairy tale entirely. The dagger between the legs paired with the title makes it all click.

I come from Denmark and i've been growing up with the original tales as my bedtime stories. The original ones are by far superior, and this is an absolute stunning piece, interpreting the sadness that is the core of the original story really well.

I always found the original version to be much more poignant. Better "moral of the story", too.

I assume that is the dagger she refused to use on her prince?  Always did love the original tale.  I lived in Hanua as a child where the statue of this mermaid was honored as a prominent local tale (and also the birthplace of the brother's Grimm).  This story will always be a part of my inspirations that formed the artist I am today.  Absolutely brilliant and simple rendition here.  She just glows with sadness and otherworldly beauty.

Beautiful pic! Really gorgeous! I hate the Disney version, it's just not the 'The Little Mermaid' story I grew up with >o<
Such a shame Disney shat all over the original story by making it have a happy ending and no dark bits.

excellent work! The Hans Christian Anderson version is a gift to read
