Original painting for a basecard in the ‘Dreamers of Darkness’ trading card set depicting a ‘Vampire Squid’.
If a mermaid is half woman half fish, then this is half woman and half ‘vampyroteuthis infernalis’ which translates as literally: ‘vampire squid from hell’. How could I resist? :)
(I should point out the ‘vampyroteuthis infernalis’ is a real and fabulous creature.)
