Did You Know?
The great explorer, Christopher Columbus, claimed that he saw actual mermaids while he was exploring the Caribbean.
Mermaids have always been a subject of mystery, fantasy, folklore, and art for many of us. But the person who first introduced them, and made them popular, to the world was the famous writer, Hans Christian Andersen. He wrote the epic fairytale ‘Little Mermaid’ in the year 1836 (yes, the story is actually that old!), and made this beautiful creature a favorite among many of us.
Princess Ariel taught us to dream, explore, to try to go beyond our limits and enjoy the gifts of this world. She was sweet, kind, curious, but always had the company of her friends and her ever-loving father who always helped her out during turbulent times. All of us, be it kids or adults, have our own imagination, our own fantasies, wherein we too may meet a mermaid one day, or enter a magical sea that turns us into happy and pretty mermaids, playing all along, swimming in and out of the depths of water. If you too share this dream and are passionate about this epic figure―the beautiful mermaid―then the following section will give you 50 amazing pictures that you can print and color.
