Marina the Mermaid Signed Art Tiki Deep Sea Diver
Perils and Pearls

A deep sea diver in a classic Mark 5 diving helmet and dive suit explores the mysteries of the ocean’s depths in search of its aquatic treasures.  He stumbles upon a rare giant clam and finds the jewel within, a flawless giant white pearl.  As he tries to escape with his new found wealth, the giant clam clamps down on the diver’s foot.  His first reaction is to quickly grab his trusty knife and pry his way out of this aquatic vise.  However, the clam is much stronger and his knife snaps in two!

Now, the diver knows the end is near.  The giant clam has got him and the sharks are circling above.  But wait!  Out of the depths of the darkness comes Marina the Mermaid.  She uses her mermaid magic and muscles and frees the diver’s leg.  The deep sea diver lives to see another day, and wonders if Marina the Mermaid is the true “pearl” of the ocean.

As an added bonus, each print comes personally signed by Marina herself.  A portion of each sale goes directly to the MeduSirena Pod to help fund their aquatic adventures, so help support your mermaids!  Each signature will be slightly different, so who knows what she will write to you!!

This is a high quality 7.5x10 print archivally printed on thick Epson paper.  

About Marina:

Born and raised in the islands of the Caribbean, Marina Duran - Anderson learned free diving at the tender age of three from her father, an avid dive enthusiast, aquarist, and boater.  Her marine interests made her an enthusiastic student of marine biology & physiology.  She began working at sea aquariums and science museums from age 13, becoming an honors marine biology student throughout her scholastic years. 

Her mother's influential interest in vintage Hollywood films, stage performance & dance also led Marina to explore & study a variety of diverse dance styles. Her studies and skills led to accomplished international performances in both Polynesian & Middle Eastern dance as well as in Japanese dance and percussion.

As Marina's diving and dance style began to further progress, she became quite interested in aquatic spectacles - dive shows and water ballets combining the graceful movements of dance with her familiar underwater environment.  Pool and tank shows featuring aquatic theatre, dance & spectacles, once seemingly plentiful in years past, unfortunately began to quickly loose their luster with general audiences, almost entirely disappearing. 

Marina's seemingly diverse disciplinary background appeared to evolve quite naturally into a unique style of retro-performance art, a combination of dance and aquatic theatre, influenced by the movements of sea creatures and the human form dancing in liquid space.  Marina chose to dub it "MeduSirena", the combined names of Medusa (an adult jellyfish) dancing in the water, and Sirena, a woman of the sea.  

Marina later began to teach this style of performance art to a small group of students. Eventually becoming aquatic performers themselves, the MeduSirena Pod was created, a group that currently continues to grow in number.  It is Marina's sincere wish to continue to help preserve aquatic shows, and to help influence new aquatic performers for future generations.
