Mermaid with Maracas by Exulien Exuma

A mermaid with an innocent face shakes a beguiling rhythm with her maracas.  No wonder she is the Enchantress of the Sea! Mermaids appear in many cultures from Norwegian sagas  to the legends of Ancient Greece.  She found her way to Haiti by way of the elaborate mermaid figureheads carved on British ships that transported slaves from West Africa to the New World.  In Haiti, she is known as "La Siren," and her spirit represents love, beauty, and vanity in Haitian cultural.
