Exposing the many videos about false mermaids in YouTube. Most of them are sculptures by the fantastic sculptor Juan Cabana.

A mermaid is a legendary aquatic creature with the upper body of a female human and the tail of a fish.[1] Mermaids appear in the folklore of many cultures worldwide, including the Near East, Europe, Africa and Asia. The first stories appeared in ancient Assyria, in which the goddess Atargatis transformed herself into a mermaid out of shame for accidentally killing her human lover. Mermaids are sometimes associated with perilous events such as floods, storms, shipwrecks and drownings. In other folk traditions (or sometimes within the same tradition), they can be benevolent or beneficent, bestowing boons or falling in love with humans.
Mermaids are associated with the mythological Greek sirens as well as with sirenia, a biological order comprising dugongs and manatees. Some of the historical sightings by sailors may have been misunderstood encounters with these aquatic mammals. Christopher Columbus reported seeing mermaids while exploring the Caribbean, and sightings have been reported in the 20th and 21st centuries in Canada, Israel and Zimbabwe. The U.S. National Ocean Service stated in 2012 that no evidence of mermaids has ever been found.
Mermaids have been a popular subject of art and literature in recent centuries, such as in Hans Christian Andersen's well-known fairy tale "The Little Mermaid" (1836). They have subsequently been depicted in operas, paintings, books, films and comics.

The word mermaid is a compound of the Old English mere (sea), and maid (a girl or young woman).[1] The equivalent term in Old English was merewif.[2] They are conventionally depicted as beautiful with long flowing hair.[1] As cited above, they are sometimes equated with the sirens of Greek mythology (especially the Odyssey), half-bird femme fatales whose enchanting voices would lure soon-to-be-shipwrecked sailors to nearby rocks, sandbars or shoals.

Морская дева[1][2] (морская муза[3], фараонка, морская сирена, европейская русалка, чеш. Mořská panna, англ. Mermaid) — мифологический персонаж, встречающийся в легендах и мифах народов Европы, дева с рыбьим хвостом вместо ног, живущая в море. В восточно-славянской мифологии — дочь Морского царя.
В поздней русской литературе и кинематографе под западным влиянием, образ Морской девы слился с образом славянской русалки, которая по внешнему виду была похожа на человека и ходила на двух ногах. В англоязычном бестиарии для славянских русалок употребляется слово rusalka, а для морских дев — mermaid.

Прародителем морских дев считается вавилонское божество мужского пола — Оаннес. Каждое утро он выходил из волн Красного моря, чтобы обучать людей земледелию, строительству, врачеванию и другим искусствам и ремеслам. Вечером Оаннес снова скрывался в морских волнах.

Nightmares e.e Why did I go to the weird side of youtube again? e.e
As much as I believe that, yes, these are indeed all fake, you are providing NO research or evidence as to why they are. Saying, "Fake" or "Sculpture" is not enough.

+Juan Cabana Your comments are appearing marked as spam, I don't know why because they are not, as it was a coincidence that I found them. I haven't stolen your photographs, Juan. I asked your permission to use them years ago. I have been sending people to your website since. I understand your frustration with YouTube because I have gone through the same with some of my videos. You are welcome to communicate with me by sending me a personal message. You find that functionality in the channel page that says "about"

매우 매우 충격적인 뉴스--터키 아라랏트산 해발 4.000미터 지점에 노아방주 (성경 창8장4절) 가 4473년전 7월 17일 아라랏산에 머물다 라고 기록 되어 있는데 바로 그산에 홍콩 15명 탐험대에 의해 길이 약 140 미터 폭이 약 25미터 높이 약 15미터 3층으로 된 거대한 나무배가 빙하속에서 발견된 것은 진화론자 입을 막게 했고 성경책이 100% 사실임을 입증 했고 (성경책이 일점 일획도 틀리지 않는다고도 기록되어 있습니다) 하나님(예수님 )노하시면 매우 무섭고 두렵고 그리고 성경에 죽음 후 천국 과 지옥이 기다리고 있고 이세상에서 행위를 한대로 예수님 앞에서 심판을 받아 천국 혹은 지옥으로 간다고  분명히 기록 되어 있기에 죽음 후 천국 과 지옥이 존재 하고  예수님이 우주 만물 사후 세계를 관장 하신다는 증거 라고 해도 과언은 아닌 것 같습니다. 더 많은 증거 자료를 www.jhdh.org 에서 보셔요 (성경책에 하나님(예수님)이 인간들 타락상을 $$$-노아 방주의 숨은 의미-? $$$ 보시고 화가 나서 물로 전인류(죄 없는 가축까지) 전멸 시켰다는 전설 같은 소문이 사실 임을 입증하는 증거가 노아 방주 인데 이것이 사실로 확인 되었기에 하나님(예수님) 이  얼마나 두려운 존재 인지 무섭고 걱정되고 이해가 됩니다.) 그 하나님이 지금도 살아 계시니까 문제 이자 걱정 입니다. 하나님 영접 하여 화를 면하고 천국 갑시다. 천국 가는 입장권 과 우주와 바꾸시겠습니까?

Yes her voice is so fake to me so she must be an agent to conceal the truth.
