Caption: Male mermaid, 19th century artwork. This fish figure can also represent creatures such as tritons. Here, it has a man's head, such as found in mermen, the male form of a mermaid. Most human-animal hybrid mythological forms consist of a human from the waist up, rather than just the head, as shown here. This engraving is from Japan, and Japanese writing is at upper right.
