This personal art shows an image of a mermaid from Russian fairytales, also known as “Rusalka”. The main difference between Mermaid and Rusalka is that Rusalka has no fishtail.

She is an evil spirit, living in rivers, swamps, and other not clean nature ponds. In legends depending on a region, she can look like a child or a young girl, or an old woman with a deformed body.
