The mermaid is probably one of the most famous figures from the classic mythology. Who has not heard of the charming half-fish, half-human women who, with their seductive voice, attracted the crew of ships.
Even before the arrival of what we call classic mythology, one assumed that all life came from the sea, hence the mermaids were originally marine gods.
Other goddesses born from the sea are Venus and Aphrodite, which means "born of foam", namely sea foam.
Hans Christian Andersen wrote a fairytale about her, Disney produced the film and Copenhagen has a statue of her, which is Denmark's most famous tourist attraction.
The story of Christian Andersen is about a little mermaid who rescues the life of a prince who has suffered shipwreckage. Then she does everything to keep the prince from her. The price she pays for it is high: to become a man she has to give up her beautiful voice and her mermaid tail and if the prince marries another, she would become foam on the waves and disappear forever.
