Very unusual. I wonder if the patterns are natural or imprinted and if so I wonder how it is put on at all. Still, an interesting concept for a mermaid. Rather harsh and savage looking along the lines of a predator. Very striking contrast of colors and an eye catching tail.

thanks for the comment. I had natural in mind for the patterns like some sort of bioluminescence

I can see that working in many ways. Was wondering about the nose bone or is that a growth of a kind. The head fins seemed like a great choice over hair but overall, just really a wonderful piece.

Wicked tail, loooving the alternate design up front. Nice change for a mermaid! AFrican fish femmes would be badass.
