Another Mermaid?!

As a lover of anything ocean-related, it was bound to happen when we would talk about a sea creature we are all familiar with. Let’s jump right in!


Ceasg | Scotland

“Mermaid that grants three wishes when captured.”

Basic Facts:

  • The ceasg is a fancy (if you’re not Scottish) word for ‘mermaid.’
  • In Gaelic, they’re known as maighdean mhara or maid of the sea.
  • She’s half-woman and half-salmon. But a little different than the long tail, we’re used to seeing.
  • She can get married but she’ll always go back to her first love: the sea. If she bears a male offspring, they’ll usually become a sailor – a damn good one.
  • Defense is needed. It’s simple: don’t acknowledge them, show them respect, no eye contact, and don’t go with them if they ask you to.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this and the image is stunning. What beautiful art. Thanks for sharing these. I am a ocean addict, growing up in Hawaii made me fall in love with all things that live in the water!
