We all know the story of Ariel the little mermaid. But do you know the original story as well? In the original fairytale the little mermaid didn't get her happy ending ike Ariel. At the end of the story the prince marries another princess. The poor little mermaid can only save her life by killing her prince with an enchanted knife. She can only safe herself by sacrificing her true love, the prince who will never will be hers.... But she can't do it because she still loves him...even more than her life. So at the end she decides to sacfifice herself instead and turns into sea foam which she thinks will be her death. The story is so beautiful and sad at the same time.
This doll is my interpretation of the little mermaid captured just in the moment when she turns into sea foam.
She was a Monster High Lagoona doll before. Painted with acrylic paints.
Edit: just to avoid misunderstandings, in the original tale is written, that the Little Mermaid throws herself into the water knowing that she will turn into sea foam and die and since mermaids don't have a soul she will be gone forever. After falling into the water she "feels that her body dissolves into sea foam", but she doesn't die. She transforms somehow into a daughter of the air and has a new chance to earn an immortal soul. The translation sais that she is "uplifted to the daughters of air". This already has caused a lot of discussions on Facebook, because people were telling me that this part, the transformation into sea foam, never happened. In the most translations and versions of the story, the body of the mermaid dissolves into sea foam and this is the moment I wanted to capture with my doll. The sadness of the mermaid in this patricular moment, when she thinks that she lost everything, her true love and a chance to get an immortal soul.
Anyway, very nice job with the foam. Also, your repaints are incredibly artistic, wow!!
