Mermaid Hugging Man

Look for part 2 of my tour of the NGA exhibition in the next few days!  In the mean time, I give you a Wombat Friday special. 

On my birthday last Saturday, my awesome Pre-Raphaelite friend Verity gave me a heads-up on this shirt available on the website Yizzam under the description "Mermaid Hugging Man."  I got a huge giggle out of that one, and Verity and Kirsty and I joked that all Pre-Raphaelite artworks should have literal titles. 

Aaaanyway, I had to buy the shirt, and it arrived today!  Morris the Wombat approves. 


My favorite artwork on a shirt!  (In case you didn't know, the ACTUAL title is Depths of the Sea, by Edward Burne-Jones)  Life is good...

It suits you and your Wombat too! Really like the idea of literal titles for works of art. Gives me some lovely thoughts to dwell upon .... x

Wow I love that! I found you via the Pre-Raph Sisterhood Facebook page, I can't wait to see your blog! I love all of it too. And that shirt is gorgeous, the blue with your hair is stunning!! Take care, from another redhead -

Cool. Now I need to see Chanson d'Amour on a shirt and I'll be happy.

Raine, it's so fun!!

Thank you Mrs. Black! Oh there are some wonderful possibilities in literal titles for Pre-Raphaelite artworks.

Marina, I'm so glad you found me! Thanks!

Mina, indeed!
