Have you noticed that mermaid tshirts and other ocean creatures custom products are a thing nowadays? Well, we should not be surprised with most of our blue planet covered by water. Mermaids and mermen are the marine versions of half-human, half-animal legends that have captured human imagination for ages.
The famous “Arabian Nights,” described mermaids as having “moon faces and hair like a woman’s but their hands and feet were in their bellies and they had tails like fishes.” Also, Greek mythology contains stories of the god Triton, the merman messenger of the sea. Several modern religions including Hinduism and Candomble (an Afro-Brazilian belief) worship mermaid goddesses to this day. Not least of all, many children are perhaps most familiar with the Disney version of “The Little Mermaid”.
Though not as well known as their comely female counterparts, there are of course mermen. They have an equally fierce reputation for summoning storms, sinking ships and drowning sailors.
Mermaids may be ancient, but they are still with us in many forms; their images can be found all around us in films, books, Disney movies, at Starbucks — and maybe even in the ocean waves if we look close enough.
Mermaid mythology is quite varied, with mermaids taking on many different appearances, origins, and personalities. So are the mermaid tshirts. We found some stunning designs and we want them all. Not to mention that they`re on SALE <3
