How have mermaids survived?  A lower body attachment to the sea and an upper body attachment to the sun and stars.

Divided, yes, and yet, a very coherent symbol.  Mermaid lore has survived extremely well -- and for reasons:  The mermaid is a quintessential symbol of dual nature and dichotomy, in this case, the dual nature of conscious and unconscious. The sea has long been a symbol for the unconscious.  

ARCHETYPES APPEAR IN VARIOUS MOTIFS

THIS TELLS US A LOT ABOUT THE MANY DIMENSIONS OF THE FEMININE SIDE.

"Symbols are the vehicles of meaning in the unconscious.  Once we take the time to learn how to give them life, we begin to understand their language."
