Creatures Of The Sea

Creatures of the Sea

In this gallery are fifteen fascinating images of Creatures of the Sea in black and white. They come from the book Fictitious and Symbolic Creatures in Art, written by John Vinycomb in 1906. You’ll find illustrations of mermaids and sirens, sea horses, Triton, and more. Vinycomb starts his section by writing that “Mariners in all ages, prone to superstitious fears, have peopled the great deep with beings of the most dreadful kind, all the more wonder and indescribable because of the mysterious and unknown regions in the sea depths which they were supposed to inhabit.” If you are intrigued by these drawings of Sea Creatures, be sure to check out the pages with Sea Monsters and other Mythical Creatures of the Sea. Have fun!
