Victorian Mermaids

On a hot sticky day like today the lure of the cooling sea is loud and strong or is it the siren calls of the mermaids I hear?

John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) English Painter


  1. Love the Orange Fairy Book image. There is something beautifully eerie about the tail...

  2. Gorgeous images! Really love them all!

  3. Ooh, this post is perfect!

    As a child, I often dreamed of becoming a mermaid... and I can't even swim.

    The Victorian advert and John William Waterhouse painting are my favourites ♥

  4. Koh what gorgeous pictures! The Here Be Faeries wallpaper is my Facebook background!
