The Mermaids of Juan Cabana

Mermaids exist in the twilight place between land and sea, in the psychological intertidal zone between life-giver and life-taker. Wanton, seductive and alluring, these amphibious goddesses of classical myth toy unabashedly with a man’s affections, offering him sweetness yet bringing only death.

    The stuff that nightmares are made of. Both are obviously fake, and made of either paper mache’ or plaster. The question I have is how in the gods green earth did they make them.

  • Aimee

    Well The first one does not look like a mermiad…it look more like a deep sea fish that you never see because we cant get deep enough to find all the creatures down there, and well the second picture looks like it is made out of styrofoam…and its gums are much too pink for it to be dead…also its eyes look fake..but im not sure about those…really I dont think that is real at all…and I now styrofoam floats but people have ways of filling styrofoam.

    Anyways Thats what I think of those pictures…

  • Aimee AGAIN

  • I just want to know if these so called mermaids are actually real. I have always heard tales and fictional stories about them, and i have always been fascinated by them. That is why I want googled this subject.
    Thank You for your response, (if i get one) and I hope to get the truth.

  • michelle

    that is so real. fairies mermaids and all those other mythical creatures are also real. they dont live in our own universe they live in a parellel universe. so us humans dont capture them and steal them. they dont want to be science experiments.
