About the artwork Ningyo 人魚

Ningyo (jap. 人魚, Engl. "human fish") is a fish-like creature from Japanese folklore. The term is often translated as mermaid.

According to the description, her mouth resembles that of a monkey, her teeth are small like those of a fish with shiny golden scales and she has a quiet voice similar to that of a skylark or flute. Its meat is said to be tasty and gives immortality to anyone who eats it. Catching a ningyo is said to cause storms and bad luck. Therefore, it was said that accidentally caught ningyo should be thrown back into the sea. A ningyo washed up on the beach was considered an omen of war and great misfortune. [Source: Wikipedia]
