Sea Monsters At The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Italian Sea Monster Bronze, 1500-1510

Italy Sea Monster Bronze 1500-1510

Another strange human / fish hybrid, with scary claws and angry countenance. This one comes from Italy, a bronze sculpture from 1500-1510 and we can't help but wonder if its based on the same sort of creature as the Peruvian one. Mermaid maybe?
