Japanese Merman #4

This is the last of the mermen and today I am shipping them ALL off to Kansas City for Quilt Market. Three should be coming back home to me and then they will be available for sale ($375).

This fellow, no flowers. I focused on the dark.

This is the second of the choices for the “skin/tattoos”. I have no idea what any of that kanji means. This body pattern is the same as the first: small side fins and a back fin.
