The starfish or sea star is not really a fish at all! It is more related to the sand dollar or sea urchin. It has a hard shell and no brain. There are roughly 2000 kinds of starfish and can have as many as 40 arms! Who knew?!
Like the mermaid, they have the ability to heal…only in their case they can heal or regenerate themselves. If one of their arms breaks off, they simply grow a new one!
This piece, entitled “Sea Star”, 16” x 16“ shows the beautiful and graceful mermaid and the splendid and strange sea star in their watery world…a world filled with mysterious and remarkable creatures–like the sea star.
