40 Alluring Mermaid Fantasy Artworks

In popular literature and arts, these mythical aquatic creatures are often depicted to be female maidens of the deep sea which tempts men and gods not only with their beauty but also with their beautiful and charming voices.

In folklore and literature, mermaids are said to have a female body from head to torso but have a lower body of that of the tail of a fish. Mermaids are somewhat related to other mythical and legendary creatures like the Sirens in Greek Mythology which are daughters of gods and dwell in the deepest of the Mediterranean sea, water nymphs and water fairies in popular literature as well. Mermaids are sometimes said to lure sailors and seafarers with their enchanting music and voices which hypotize or confuse the ship’s crew. These confusions often results in sinking of ships and people being lost at sea and are taken by mermaids into the deepest of the ocean. Although many ancient and popular stories about mermaids describes them to bring forth misfortune to men or symbolizes unlucky omens and disasters, many fantasy stories and folktales tells stories of mermaids as benevolent creatures which helps sea-going folks in times when they are lost or struck by strong storms.

We have listed before some Beautiful Valkyrie Artworks which are also depicted as beautiful maidens in the battlefield. Also we have listed before Awesome Elf And Elven Character Digital Art which are also mythological and legendary fantasy creatures. Here are some illustrations of these fantasy sea creatures with different depictions – some are fearsome yet most are portrayed to be beautiful and benevolent.
