The mermaid mummy idea has been fermenting in the grey cells for quite some time. I recently Googled mermummy just to see what else was out there, and mostly got these really grotesque, dried up ugly beasts with fins. Interesting, but I decided to go for the looker instead. The unraveling bandages begin to reveal an exquisite, detailed scale pattern and tail fin, as well as an ancient Egyptian style eye.

This is a fine art rubber stamp designed and made by Steven Vander Meer in Humboldt County, California. The die is deeply etched natural red vulcanized rubber, which is hand trimmed and adhered to red sponge cushion (the good kind, not the self-adhesive kind). The cushion is also trimmed by hand and then mounted to a smoothly sanded and oiled Maple block, with a clear black index printed on the top. The MEER IMAGE name is hot iron branded onto the end-grain of the block, and the SVM personal signature chop is added to the top of the block in red ink (space permitting).

Mount Type:Maple hardwood block indexed in black and finished with linseed oil. Block Width:1.75 inches Block Length:5.5 inches Block Thickness:3/4 inch Image Size:Approximately 1/4 inch less than block size
