Mermaids have found their way into songs, movies, and literature..
One of my favorite poems is The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock. It was written by T.S. Eliot whose last name, of course, begins with E.
Here are the final verses:
Egypt also begins with E which is where Hungarian explorer Laszlo Almasy discovered prehistoric cave drawings in the 1930’s. Some of the painted figures resemble swimming mermaids. The cave, known as the Cave of the Swimmers, is located in the Sahara desert of southwest Egypt near the border of Libya. The prehistoric paintings were estimated to have been created 10,000 years ago. Scientists believe that this region once was lush and green and contained large lakes. The Animal Planet channel used these pictures as proof of the existence of mermaids in their controversial documentary, Mermaids: The Body Found.
