The Art of Juan Cabana 

This post was recommended to me by a follower of mine!

All of it really is intriguing

In 2001, he came across a tiny, Japanese mermaid constructed from wood and paper — reminiscent of the Fiji mermaids, created thousands of years ago in Japan and China.

He was inspired by that to make his new creations. 

He enjoys the art but he strongly believes that mermaids could have been real at one time. 

He won’t reveal his techniques, explaining only that he typically starts with a human skeleton replica or animal and fish bones, and molds the mermaid with whatever parts and skins he gets from the market.

Occasionally he’ll use baboon skin and parts, as they come with small humanlike hands and miniature skulls. A vendor in Africa sells him the parts, he says.

You can visit his official site here

He has sold some of pieces for $10,000

As a blogger I find those who panhandle online a bit rude, considering how much hard work other bloggers put into their sites who don’t go around asking for things. More than likely this is fucking spam however.
