Seal/Woman - limited edition cyanotype original print, blue, handmade, selkie, sea, folklore

Selkies are said to live as seals in the sea but shed their skin to become human on land. The legend is common in Orkney and Shetland. Male selkies are described as being very handsome in their human form, and having great seductive powers over human women. They typically seek married women waiting for their fishermen husbands. Female selkies can be 'caught' and married in human form by hiding their seal skins, but if she finds her skin she will immediately return to her true home. <:((((><(
