Pregnant Mermaid Nursing Child
Cassandra George Sturges
Sculpture - Cloth Fabric Sculpture
Have you ever seen a pregnant Mermaid with a sheer belly where you can see the baby mermaid inside waiting to be born? Well now you have.
I wanted her to be traditionally beautiful fairy mermaid, with soft features and long flowing black hair. After making 7 heads for her that all looked similar even after tweaking each drawing, I became exasperated and decided to work on her another day.
While taking a shower, a thought popped in my head as if she was talking to me. The Fairy Mermaid said, �You don�t think I am beautiful do you?� Of course not, I thought to myself you look hideous. I want you to be pretty so people will like you. She said to me, �Just because I don�t look like Barbie or have conventional beauty you think I am unattractive, do you?�
Yes, I told her in fact, I am ashamed and embarrassed by you. The Fairy Mermaid said, �I Know that I am beautiful and I come from a proud species. We don�t like the way you humans are treating the earth. We want the same things for our families that you want for yours. We want our babies to swim in clean water. We don�t want to be hunted and exploited by being displayed in your zoos and museums. My message to you is: Respect the beauty of all beings and please SHARE THE EARTH�it belongs to all of us.
She insisted on a blonde Mohawk and bright red lips. She is a feisty little thing who made me love and respect her beauty. She is looking forward to meeting her new owner who will adore her unique beauty.
The elfin fairy mermaid is pregnant and comes with nursing child.
