Not intended as a Real Weird Animal, this beautiful mixed media Serea Carlos Botana sent to me as a 'thank you' for my Mermaid for the Send me a Mermaid project.
Serea... I couldn't find the word in the dictionary. Serea must be 'Mermaid' in Gallego, as there also is a Serea in Vigo, Galicia.
And Sereia is Mermaid in Portuguese. Since the moment I opened the envelope and read the word 'Serea', the words 'Minha Sereia é Rainha do Mar' (a famous Brazilian song) go through my mind continuously.
Also beautiful are the fine Mermaid on the original Carlos Botana stamp, and the butterfly which was issued by the Spanish correos, post.
Muchas gracias, Carlos!
