Recently, news of a supposed mermaid washed up on a beach in the Philippines has been making headlines. Many people were surprised by the images of the half-human, half-fish creature that has a pale face, long tail, and multiple fins.
The discovery of this legendary figure has brought an omen for the nation, but no one is quite sure what it is.
International news sites published the image of the “mermaid’s body” with a description that it was found on the Spanish island of Canaria. A witness named Peter claimed to have personally discovered the “mermaid’s body” while jogging along the beach. He stated that when he got close, he couldn’t believe his eyes because it was so similar to the mermaid that we often see in fairy tales or television.
However, some people are speculating that this is just a technology product or a work of art that was created to deceive people. This isn’t the first time strange creatures considered to be mermaids have caused controversy.
The first mermaid was found in 1403 in Eton, England when the floodwaters receded and left her stranded on the coast. A group of fishermen found her and took her to the town.
According to the book “Speculum Mundi,” published in 1635 and written by British minister John Swan, the mermaid appeared to assimilate into the “earthly” life, liked to wear beautiful clothes, and liked to play. She would listen to the ladies’ confiding, but she never opened her mouth to talk.
Many people believe that mermaids have long tails and many scales, and the appearance of this creature has sparked much controversy. Some say it’s just a product of art, while others believe it’s a real mermaid that has washed ashore. Whatever the case may be, the discovery of this mysterious creature has captured the attention of people worldwide.
