BEING SURROUNDED by water, it is only natural that Filipinos have a deep fascination with mythical sea creatures particularly mermaids or locally known as “sirena”. These alluring and mysterious sea maidens are often depicted in popular art and culture, the current craze for primetime TV drama. They are mythical half-fish, half-humans who hypnotize men with their angelic singing voice and enchanting beauty. Mermaids are also believed to possess supernatural powers of healing. These ethereal beings are the source of urban legends and local folklore which continue to captivate the imagination of both young and old alike.
