But a mermaid has no tears, and therefore she suffers so much more.” ― Hans Christian Andersen, The Little Mermaid.

Other artwork of my muses project, this time based on the Nereids myth.
I made this picture trying to avoid one single meaning. Her side can be real or her imagination, the other way around is also possible, both can be "real" too. That's the reason why the line between both worlds are carefully demarcated. I wanted to involve my viewers making them create their own interpretation.
Just believe your favorite story :)
