The Seahorse as a Sailor’s Lucky Talisman

January 15, 2016

It was now the hour that turns back the longing of seafarer and melts their hearts, the day they have bidden dear friends farewell, and pierces the new traveler with love if he hears in the distance the bell that seems to mourn the dying day. Dante

Seashorse

Seahorse design featuring paisley motif by Meredith Eliassen, 2016.

Some Asian cultures traditionally viewed the seahorse as a sea dragon and prized them as symbols of good luck. The seahorse is a unique creature. The female impregnates the male who carries the offspring to term. A mild-mannered creature, the seahorse contentlt ambles through the ocean. The seahorse wraps its tail around the nearest object or mate in order to anchor itself in turbulent waters. Paisley Seahorse Notecard
