Mermaids By The Pond

Mermaids are believed to be mythological but there is always some truth in myth, it just depends on how you define truth. A myth can have many levels of symbolism and meaning, and you can always find some truth when you delve into peeling away the layers. All the religions of the world have stories, myths and ideologies that have commom threads that show up over and over again in cultures all over the planet since history has been recorded...things that we can connect with in our innermost beings....if we listen to and recognize them. So - my photo of the mermaids sculpture was taken by water, at a really neat place, a place that has a lot of truth, beauty and symbolism, The Cleveland Museum of Art.
