"Maybe she would have been better off with a fish-tail. At least I would have had no concerns about whether or not she could swim."

Sei, dreaming of his missing sweetheart, has been reading about Eumin myths about "mermaids".

Mixed media. The tail is done in a "sort of" iris-folding technique, but with lots of circles cut from a sort of textured, opalescent paper. It's a lot glitterier in real life, but harder to see the difference between the scale colours - I think I prefer this version.
