A tiny sneak peek of a wonderful day at the beach with the gorgeous Lisette. Inspired by the "la Sirenetta" story from the Brothers Grimm.
"Suddenly she heard a cry from the water and dimly saw her sisters in the darkness. "Sirenetta! It's us.. Your sisters! Look! Do you see this knife? It's magic! The Witch gave it to us in exchange for our hair. Take it! Kill the prince before dawn, and you will become a mermaid again and forget all your troubles."
But as she gazed at the young man's sleeping face, she simply blew him a furtive kiss, before running back into the dunes. When dawn broke, she threw the knife into the sea. Then she shot a parting glance at the world she was leaving behind, and dived into the waves, ready to turn into the foam of the sea from whence she had come, and vanish."
"Swamp Spells" print, inspired by the 'Eleionomae' (spirits of nature). Dwellers of the marshlands, often misleading travelers with their illusions by portraying themselves as their loved ones. Eleionomae have an unnatural aura of beauty, as well as an unquantifiable air of mystery. Young men who've encountered these swamp nymphs, never came back.
As one story tells: "You never get to see their faces. Those poor young lads get mesmerized by their singing and follow them until they can't find their way back home anymore. Legends tell they get eaten alive once they are lost and paralyzed by their Swamp Spells." Print for sale on my Etsy.
