A sailor who fell in love with a mermaid
I collect mermaids of all sorts... this image will have an honored place among them. This is one of a very few mermaids shown enjoying their private underwater environment unabashedly.

Popular Surrealist Paintings from Mexico
Surreal Limited-Edition Giclee on Canvas, "The Tree of the Chaneques"
This intriguing limited-edition giclee on canvas is from Madero in Mexico. The surreal artwork depicts strange, otherworldly creatures beneath a tree, bathed in moonlight. Dating back to the Aztecs, are creatures from Mexican folklore; sprite-like beings that inhabit the underworld. The word chaneque is from the Nahuatl language and means "those who inhabit dangerous places".
Signed Giclee Print on Canvas of Surreal Painting, "Night of the Tecuan"
This colorful and fascinating limited-edition giclee on canvas is from Mexico's Madero. The surreal artwork depicts a or mythological Mexican monster in a dream-like landscape. Sometimes depicted as a jaguar or other wild cat, tecuanes were considered the most fearsome of beasts. The artist references his childhood in Guerrero, where misbehaving children would supposedly be taken away by tecuanes.
Fanciful Mexican Vibora de la Mar Giclee Print on Canvas, "Serpent of the Sea"
A colorful and fanciful serpent flies through the air above the vast and peaceful ocean. Its face and form derive from Aztec portrayals of Quetzalcoatl, the revered plumed serpent deity. Above in the night sky, the moon reveals features reminiscent of ancient Olmec art. This delightful composition by Madero is replete with Mexican symbolism.
He takes his imagery from a traditional children's game known as "La Víbora de la Mar," or "serpent of the sea." Similar to "London Bridge," children line up and, holding on to one another's waist, they run beneath the outstretched arms of two children who clasp hands to form an arch. The very catchy song is sung and the child beneath the arch when the last verse ends is out.
Giclée print of the artist's original painting titled "La Víbora de la Mar" in Spanish.
Black and White Nude Etching Print, "What I Don't Understand"
A topless woman rests beneath the cover of a fish-filled body of water in this black and white portrait by Marina Pallares.

Titled "Lo que no entiendo" in Spanish.
