This beautiful mermaid baby (Sea Baby) swimming with dolphin art and story comes from a collection of Sea Maidens (mermaids), Sea Babies (mermaid babies), Sea Masters (merman), pirateslighthouses and fairies created by renowned artist and novelist Robert Kline of St. Augustine, Florida.  The print is a lithograph reproduction of Robert’s original watercolor and pencil painting. Hand labeled and signed by Robert in pencil, all the prints come with a 1/4″ foam backing and the 5″ x 7″, 8″ x 10″, 11″ x 14″ are also matted so all you need is a frame and they are ready to hang on your wall! Each print comes with an excerpt from Robert’s novel The Forgotten Voyage of H.M.S. Baci a clever, adventurous and sometimes erotic tail in which multiple generations of the Roberts’ family explore the seven seas in search of the world’s mermaid and merman population. Thus, you receive the passage from the novel describing the particular event in which the character(s) in the print were sighted. The following is the passage for this Sea Baby with Dolphin image.

The day following Edmund C. Roberts’ sighting of a pregnant sea maiden was also productive. In the morning the young explorer left the company of his hangers-on and made a solo descent in his diving apparatus. He immediately sighted his first sea baby, it apparently enjoying the company of a rather docile dolphin. Roberts’ notebook is brief regarding this encounter, but the diaries of others aboard the Baci Finale allow for our fleshing out of his reaction: That evening Roberts retired to his salon. He was later joined by the triplets, Sara, Sue and Marie just as he finished his preliminary sketch. All three girls tiptoed up behind the young man and peered over his shoulders. Sara drew in her breath. “A sea baby an’ a dolphin! Never thought a’ that.”

“Too bad for you,” Sue taunted as Sarah turned to her. Marie remained silent and watched them both, all the while intrigued by Roberts’ drawing. “What’s that baby about?” Sarah asked. (It is a bit dodgy classifying Roberts’ commentary as fact or fiction or fairy tale.) “One would believe a bright little thing such as yourself would know immediately what ‘that baby’s about’—why, she’s— (here Roberts pauses and looks away from the girls. He adjusts his ascot, smooths the front of his smoking jacket and then continues in earnest) “having a talk with mister Dolphin. They’re all one down there, don’t you see? Fishes. Sea Maidens. The whole lot. They’re all one. So when the little ragged muffin finds itself alone—missing mummy, as it were, why quick as a snap the poor dear just turns to whomever is in the neighborhood and strikes up a conversation—”

“Asks a bloody dolphin where mums’ gone—stoker trash if there ever was,” Sarah rejoined.

“Well, young lady, your knowledge of the universe now challenges that of Lucretius, you remain you remain dreadfully short in the undersea category. The particular Sea Baby I encountered and have hence skillfully drawn, did indeed raise Mr. Dolphin’s nose, kissed him ever so softly and having observed that nicety, went on to inquire as to the whereabouts of its maternal connection—the Sea Baby’s mum—and was politely answered in kind by Mr. Dolphin. Our Sea Baby then left Mr. Dolphin and swam directly to her. I witnessed it all as I have described to you. You may believe me or return to your room with the cold delusion that I fabricated such an explanation solely for your entertainment. In any event; off to bed, all three of you.” Which leaves us with their enigma.

Edmund C. Roberts notebook reads:
Spied a Sea Baby in company of a dolphin. Communication. Sea Baby retired. Dolphin has been noted frolicking in the ships bow wave.
