‘The Mermaid’ is a fictitious scene of life on the banks of the River Thames in London, England. Central to the image is the pub The Mermaid where people are imbibing and generally having a good time. Below, on the river, a priest is rowed past the scene of revelry while a fishtail disappears into the depths of the river. Could this be a mermaid?
