The Little Mermaid by Hannah-Alexander The Little Mermaid by Hannah-Alexander
IF YOU WANT TO PUT THIS ON TUMBLR PLEASE REBLOG THIS FROM MY ACCOUNT HERE.

The second illustration in my fairytale collection.

It is inspired by the original fairytale, the Disney adaption, and art nouveau.

The flowers are anemone, which indicates fading hope and a feeling of having been forsaken; yellow carnation, which means disappointment, rejection and slighted love, and finally primrose, which means I can't live without you. (These choices make more sense if you've read the original fairytale ;) )


Please check out the Pendant Necklace and Bagcharm/Keyring based around this piece!

Thanks for looking!

I appreciated that you made Ariel topless which is different from Disney standards, and much more natural <3
