Mermaid III

This mermaid has seen better days!  I really love the fact that mermaids exist in different cultures and folklore. I see her as a strong, positive female icon and one to be celebrated in Día de los Muertos (The Day of the Dead).

Dimensions:  9.5" x 19.5"

Process and Materials: The skeletons are original linocuts. After printing them on a bali batik fabric and using discharge paste to lighten the bones, I embellished the undersea environment with embroidery, vintage and new beads and actual shells. I purchased a basic wooden frame and covered it with shells, stained glass and glass beads to create an undersea mosaic.
