A whimsical drawing of a mermaid dreaming of wearing shoes. This beautiful drawing by Oliver Herford of a lovely mermaid trying to fit her tail with a pair of shoes is one of my favorites. I hope you can find a great way to use this mythological image in your next creative work.
The author of The Mythological Zoo introduced the children of 1912 to a menagerie full of mythological beasts, heroes and villians. All of them were brought to life by the artist Oliver Herford (1863-1935).
