That's all the foul, moneygrubbing fishermen saw when they looked at her.

Large, expensive cuts of meat.

Thousand dollar fillets.

They saw their future...

...and the wealth that it would bring them.

As she lay there, bloodied and bruised, deep in unconscious sleep neither man saw what she really was, or who she really was. They saw neither the beauty of her continence, the width or breadth of her well versed mind, or the depth of her radiant heart.

All they saw was profit.

All they saw was meat.

I feel really bad for her, but at the same time can't help looking at her sliced flesh and think "sushi"!

At an artist level, it's amazing. But as a person who actually like mermaids, it's quite disturbing too. Perfect none less.

What a cruel painting! It affects so directly ... fantastic!
While watching your artworks many stories squeezed in my brain ...

I handled this subject as well in some of my artworks, for example against the cruelty of whaling:…

I just had a horrible thought about what the sailors must have done to the girl half of her before they made sashimi out of the fish half. Ugh...

A tad morbid...but still, beautifully done, and quite interesting.

I fell in love with this picture! You are a master of his craft. A riot of colors and harsh reality are intertwined and give the charm and zest of your work ... I rated 10 of 10!
