THE DESIGN & COLOUR STORY
The sea has long been connected with emotions, intuition and the subconscious. Deep, dark and mysterious, water can hold secrets we may never discover. It can also be nurturing and healing. The ocean is known as home to mermaids and it is only fitting that the mermaid echos the water in which they live. Mermaids are the dichotomy of light and dark, they can be both alluring and dangerous. In folklore, a mermaid’s song and voice was used to lure the listener, often to the point of setting aside safety and causing the listener to plunge into the waves. This leap could bring doom or it could bring salvation. Sometimes it brought both. The mermaid's song lures us to the unknown, to the impassioned world of change and possibility. Mermaids continue to be a part of our imagination because they represent a primal human need; to dive deep into the mystery of our unlived life.
This warrior design calls us to celebrate and honor the inner warrior in all of us. Embodying this state can mean being vulnerable and plunging into the unknown, trusting whatever the outcome may be. As the mermaid reminds us, the deep and mysterious can be cleansing and healing.
