He is drawn and painted using colored pencils, watercolor pencils, sparkling H2O, watercolor, and gold acrylic on heavy cold pressed watercolor paper. His tail fin will be moveable on a brad. I made him as an 'angel' paper doll because a group member did not come through with her promised doll. My mer man is just about to perform the "Mudra of the Inner Self" as he swims along. He's just come from a reading and is very inspired. Here's what he heard at the reading:
"We live on in form and illusion
And only sense in days of suffering
The eternal changeless existence
Of which dark dreams tell us.
We hope for redemption and salvation
In the unreal offerings of dreams-
Since we are gods and take part
In the very beginnings of Creation."
-partial quote by Hermann Hesse
