On researching mermaids, I found it interesting to discover that many cultures around the world had their own unique perception of how a mermaid looked, with some similarities, such as possessing combs and mirrors. Throughout the years, as mariners sailed the world, the European legend of mermaids spread and merged, in some instances, with the local beliefs of water spirits that were half woman and half fish.
