An age old sailor’s tale reimagined in vivid greek modernity 💙
There exists a popular Greek legend which talks about a mermaid who lived in the Aegean Sea for hundreds of years, named Thessaloniki. Daughter of Phillip II and sister of Alexander the Great.
In his quest for the Fountain of Immortality, Alexander retrieved with great exertion a flask of immortal water with which he bathed his sister's hair.
After his tragic death, his grief-stricken princess attempted to end her life by jumping into the sea. Instead of drowning however, she was saved by her hair which suddenly came alive in a roaring shade of pink and became a mermaid passing judgment on mariners throughout the centuries and across the seven seas!
Given the wrong answer (which was anything but alive) would transform her into a angry and fire spitting, snake headed Gorgon bent on sending the ship and every sailor on board 50 feet down under to the bottom of a cold ruthless ocean 🌊
