An A5 archival print of an original drawing, featuring the anatomy of The Horniman Museum Merman

The Horniman Museum Merman has been a long-time muse of Laura, aka Bumble & Earwig, In this print of an original drawing she has imagined what the skeleton of the merman might look like!

The original curiosity dates to the 19th Century ‘feejee mermaids’ were displayed at sideshows such as that that of the famous showman, P. T Barnum. These were also often known as monkey-fish as they were believed to be made from the head of a monkey and the tail of a fish. However, The Horniman merman was scanned an x-rayed some years ago, revealing  that it was actually constructed from an array of materials, including wire, clay and cloth. This result was fascinating, but a little disappointing in the eyes of B&E! Here, the internal structure has been reimagined, revealing it’s ‘real’ anatomy!

This is an A5 archival quality print of the original artwork by Laura Cronin aka Bumble & Earwig.
