Why are mermaids so awesome?

Mermaids have been around in human imagination for centuries. From various art forms to TV shows, mermaids are all around us. Who doesn’t want to be a mermaid?

In myths and legends, mermaids are often depicted as sirens: creatures that lure sailors with their beautiful and enchanting music.

In modern folklore, mermaids are often depicted as purely good creatures that help people going fishing or who save drowning sailors from the stormy sea. (More about Merfolk)

In today’s society, mermaids show up in almost every possible area of human creativity – from clothing to technology and even in jewelry!
