The Little Mermaid

The Little Mermaid 1 – Love is Pain

Most are familiar with the classic Disney interpretation of The Little Mermaid. Here, Michelle has taken inspiration from Danish author Hans Christian Andersen’s 1800s novel. The mermaid with no name, is tormented with oysters, her tongue is cut off and given the choices of marriage or death, portraying a much darker side of the story.

From the moment she emerges from the dark blue sea and takes the witches’ fiery, powerful spell, she is gifted with human legs, in return for her tongue. As part of the bargain, a single step, feels as though she is treading upon knife blades. She gazes out to the open shore, lost in thought, uncertain. Plagued with unrequited love, she plunges into the sea; her body dispersing into sea foam.
