Mermaid Olena with Pirate

Mermaid with pirate art and story by Robert Kline

This is a retired mermaid with pirate print that is limited in supply and therefore currently available in the following matted sizes (entire matted size): 5" x 7", 8" x 10" and 11" x 14".

This wonderful Pirate and Mermaid art and story are from a collection of Sea Maidens (mermaids), Sea Babies (mermaid babies), Sea Masters (merman), pirates and lighthouse art created by renowned artist and novelist Robert Kline of St. Augustine, Florida.  The lovely mermaid and pirate print has been derived from Robert’s novel The Forgotten Voyage of the H.M.S. Baci. The print is a lithograph reproduction of  Robert’s original pencil and watercolor painting. It has been hand labeled and hand signed by Robert in pencil. All of the prints come with a 1/4″ foam backing and the 5×7′s, 8×10′s, 11×14′s are matted sizes so all you need is a frame and they are ready to hang on your wall! Each of the prints come with an excerpt from Robert Kline’s novel The Forgotten Voyage of H.M.S. Baci in which multiple generations of the Roberts’ family explore the seven seas in search of the world’s mermaid and merman population. The following is the excerpt for this pirate with Sea Maiden Olena print:

A pirate about to walk the plank was a pirate without clothes, for a sailor’s slops (which to say, his clothing, ect.) were far too valuable to be wasted on a doomed man. And thus Samuel Edmund Roberts was lifted to the extended board and stood naked in the cool morning air, his legs bound at the ankles, his arms pulled behind him and secured by a length of heavy rope and his wrists secured with his waist sash. Left only with his bandana to cover his head before God, the condemned pirate had but moments to live.

Samuel Edmond Roberts was chased to sea at the age of ten an orphan and a pick pocket and while life ashore had been a series of narrow escapes, life at sea proved to be crushing oppression. It was inevitable the headstrong youth would reach maturity and slide into piracy. But of course that too proved fraught with danger. Now twenty, Samuel had run afoul of his pirate captain and found himself framed and at the mercy of buccaneer justice. The waters were about to be chummed to attract sharks and then the youth would be pricked and prodded forward, he hoping ahead of razor sharp swords and pikes. Lazy Ike approached with two buckets of fish parts and goat viscera. “It’d be feedin’ time mates!” he chanted as he lifted the buckets for those who now pulled out dripping hands full of bloody bits. Samuel Roberts took that as his cue. As the others pushed toward Lazy Ike he crouched, took three long hops and leaped clear of the ship.

Death was inevitable.

At least two we who sit in twenty-first century America it would seem so. But we are no longer of a world populated by demons and witches, Sea Maidens and faeries. They are surely gone now, though it was not always so. There was a time when Sea Maidens and Sea Masters swam the vast oceans, cruising in the wakes of ships and lounging on distant beaches. And being one with nature, they were attuned to the moods of the sea and everything that happened in it. A ship in distress attracted them by the score (leading to the misconception that sirens were the cause of disaster when in fact they were there to help.) Thus it was that Samuel Edmund’s ship, her sails backed and waves slapping her hull in a most unnatural fashion attracted not a school of sharks but a passing Sea Maiden. She observed his plunge in her realm and went to him. With his arms bound behind, he was to her a man awaiting the subjugation of love and that is why her first pass was as a Sea Maiden in mating ritual. Then she saw the handsome youth for what he was —- one in trouble. Her second pass she pressed her lips to his mouth and breathed the assurance of the deep into him. Samuel Edmund felt her mouth on his, that feeling dovetailing nicely with the erotic adventure he was remembering as he sank. When she felt him sated she pulled away and untied him, for Sea Maidens are more dexterous than we can begin to imagine.

The accompanying image is one of the few extant of any member of the Roberts family. What distinguishes Samuel Edmund is the tattoo on his left arm; it being the Chinese character for loyalty; a concept that would shape his future.
