Mermaid Syndrom || Modern ART SURREALISM GALLERY 2006 by George Grie:

Sirenomelia Sequence [Mermaid Syndrom] is a very rare disorder, congenital structural anomaly characterized by an abnormal development of the caudal region of the body with different degrees of fusion of the lower extremities and bears resemblance to the mermaid of Greek mythology. This deformity is also known as Symmelia, Symposia, Sympus, Uromelia and Monopodia. This condition is found in approximately one out of every 100,000 live births (about as rare as conjoined twins) and is usually fatal within a day or two of birth because of complications associated with the abnormality.

Mermaids are one of the most famous creatures of popular culture, and are depicted regularly in literature and film. This is likely due to the influence of Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale The Little Mermaid (1836), which has been translated into many languages. Andersen's portrayal, immortalized with a famous bronze sculpture in Copenhagen harbour, has arguably become the standard and has influenced most modern Western depictions of mermaids since it was published. The story has been retold in other films and television programs, and regularly features in collections of fairytales. It has been adapted into various media, the most famous of which is the 1989 Disney movie of the same name.
