Facing Twins 

Sirens of the sea, mermaids are mysterious aquatic creatures that have bewildered their land counterparts for centuries. Here, two mermaids are drawn back to back, floating on a wave of ocean ripples and conjoined at the tails to bring them into complete sync with one another.

Arms crossed and heads tilted back to look at each other, the mermaids create a slight distance between their torsos which is quickly filled by a single suspended seaweed. Towards the bottom of their tails, two polar bear head silhouettes can be appreciated, embracing the mermaids and pushing them to swim the deep sea to navigate endlessly looking for a destination to rest.
