History of the Fae
No one really knows when the first mention of fairies began but the Greeks are probably the first ones to have written about them. They believed that fairies protected the land as warriors. Then the English, around the 1400's, began the stories of the "little fairies" who could either be good and helpful or mischevious tricksters. Humans were very superstitious and tried to avoid places where fairies were rumored to live. Then we have the combination of mixing pagan lore with Christianity's Angels. Very similar to fairies where they were too good for Hell but too jealous for Heaven so they got involved in human affairs. Now we mostly consider angels to be good and watch over us. The trickster ones are considered demons. Shockingly, science has not removed the possibilities of fairies all together as we might think in the modern world. Today, modern science has proven that electromagnetic matter is indeed among us, and who knows what kinds of creatures may reside there! When asked, they said it's all possible.
Mermaids in Time
Stories of mermaids have existed ever since humans have known of life in the oceans. The English word mermaid is a compound of "mere" (Old English for sea) and "maid" (a girl or young woman). Every region of the planet has their own myths, legends and encounters with the mer folk. They have inspired thousands of "fishtales" thoughout time. African cutlure believed mermaids to be mother of the waters who protected and blessed those traveling by sea. The Greeks had so many stories of mermaids and sirens and daughters of Triton and Posiedon. Sometimes humans were cursed to be sirens and they would be so bitter that they would wreck any ship that passed them. Eastern Europe had dark tales of mermaids who were the ghosts of drowned women who now lured people to their deaths. The list of popular stories can go on and on dating all the way back to 1000 BC Syria. Our interest in them doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Starbucks and Disney are probably the most popular modern day takes on a mermaid that we see daily.
What if you don't want fantasy?
What if you have a photo or a story in mind or a memory that made you feel something?We've got you covered!Humans being creative creatures have used art as a form of therapy since the beginning of time. Whether it's through cooking, or cloud shaping or looking up at the stars to find figures that we can relate to. The wind singing a song that brings back a memory, the smell of certain things making us feel something from our past. There are reasons why our brains associate certain colors with feelings. Art is all emotional. Maybe you have had something tragic happen and you want to make it beautiful instead of painful. Perhaps you have a love so strong that you want a piece of art that symbolizes that. The possibilities are endless, whatever you feel I can create. Even if you aren't sure how to describe it and you just have a few key words. Like what does the image here make you feel? What do you think it meant to me when I made it? I can tell you it's about a throat sickness and a foggy mind and lots of beautiful melancholy.
In the depths of the ocean, lived a beautiful water goddess named Lyra. Her skin was a shimmering blue that glowed like a thousand diamonds under the sunlight. Her hair flowed like the tides. Lyra ruled over the creatures of the ocean, and they all adored her.
Lyra's closest companion was a sea serpent, a creature with scales as blue as her own. The serpent was her constant companion, following her every move with its piercing gold eyes. Lyra loved to ride on the serpent's back, and together they would explore the vast and wondrous world beneath the waves.
Sedna is a goddess in Inuit mythology who is associated with the sea and marine animals. She is also known as Nuliajuk, Arnakuagsak or Arnaqquassaaq, depending on the region and dialect.
According to Inuit mythology, Sedna was a beautiful young woman who was forced into marriage with a bird by her father. When she tried to return to her family, her father threw her into the sea, where she transformed into a sea goddess.
Sedna is often depicted as a half-woman, half-fish creature, with a long braid that represents seaweed. She is also associated with sea creatures such as whales, seals, and fish.
In Inuit culture, Sedna is considered a powerful and important goddess, as she is believed to control the supply of sea animals that are essential for the Inuit's survival. The Inuit people offer prayers and offerings to Sedna to ensure a bountiful harvest and to appease her when they have been disrespectful to the sea animals.
Sedna is also believed to have the power to influence the weather and is often called upon during storms at sea.
Overall, Sedna is an important figure in Inuit mythology and plays a crucial role in the Inuit people's relationship with the sea and its creatures.
