More and more mermaids are emerging from the deep to talk to people on land. Half human, half sea creature, they are the perfect communicators between landfolk and oceanic life. Until recently, mermaids were only represented by what they considered to be the most effective ambassadors for their kind – an engineered species of more-than-human mermaids. Their diplomatic mission, however, was only partially successful. The super-humanised mermaid ambassadors were held hostage for children’s and adult entertainment purposes rather than being placed in a serious political or spiritual setting. This is when the mermaids decided to show their true faces… head fins, gills, scales, blubber, tentacles and all!
