PeggyB says: Oooooh, poor mermaid!!!! ... but well, probably exact interpretation. ;) ~ Reply?

     Michelle Goldberg replied to this: Depends whether she was trying to lure sailors to their doom ... though the "showing off her flukes" pose suggests trophy hunting rather than self defense.

Hope Bryant says: Oh My Goodness. I can so see a hunter being more impressed with the tail as the "trophy". XD ~ Reply?

Jenny Heidewald says: Ouch!! You did a really good job with the mermaid's body,it looks solid and real. ~ Reply?

Janet Chui says: *Wail.* But now there's a curse on him, right? ~ Reply?

Marianne Mathiasen says: Great job on the mermaid! ~ Reply?

Conie Fong says: Ellen, haha, this is great. Poor mermaid. Lucky dude. haha ~ Reply?
