There is a road from the eye to the heart
that does not go throught the intellect

Mermaids ... a journey through Moooi’s undersea world .

I have always admired the fantastical interiors of  Marcel Wanders.... product design and architecture, the Dutch never ceases to amaze and inspire me.Now he did it again !


“To be submerged into water is to be in a place free from the constraints of gravity, free to explore a multidimensional universe. Here, like Atlantis, the world of Moooi is enveloped in water, fit for discovery. I invite you to join the mermaids in this alternative state of being” - Marcel Wanders

The association of ideas is a powerful natural process that helps to get new ideas so now I come with  this ;) :

Mermaid Song
by }X{Angel}X{
she cries into the night
a mournful hollow melody
filling the air with echoes
of a once joyful heart
she sings an unknown language
as she combs her hair of grass
tears fall from her eyes in salt drops
mingling with the ocean's churning froth
                                                                                                      Concept art for the Pirates of Caribbean Mermaid 4
Once she was a young beauty
graced with life and laughter
now she can only sing a siren song
a sad tune, destined to lure unwary sailors
to their doom, as they drown in her careless smile

Concept art for the Pirates of Caribbean Mermaid 4
Her heart was broken
in a selfish gesture
by a lover, so untrue
now her unmerciful soul
will lead no-one home
her death in life so real
She lives not, yet she breathes
called to the sea, to drown her tears
she marks not each day, tho each passes so quickly
she sought the peace of the waves
now it's hers
tho not in death
but life again, sheathed in a scaly skin
no respite for travel weary sailor
can be found upon her shores
for she has no heart left
death inside her, reigns strong and free
she slips among the waves and sea creatures
in silent recognition
tho none speak of her
to speak her name would be deat
she acknowledges no creature in her sadness
only the sea weary sailors
lulling them to their eternal sleep
as they drown in her melodic voice
each rise of the sun
day so new, she stares into the blue horizon
as she sits upon weathered stone
amidst the crashing waves and sandy beach
screaming gulls fly overhead
as undrying tears fall into a river of grief
flowing so fast and free
to spread into the sea
in a song of mournful sorrow she waits for the someone
the one she has seen in her dreams
the one who will show her true love again
and free her from this life of death
