Return for more Youthful Fantasies Brought to Life.

Have you ever dreamed of being a marine biologist, catching “the big one”, sailing the seven seas, or hearing the siren song of a mermaid?

It’s no secret that perfume and vanity item vendors sell their wares by playing on our fantasies. And many a youth has been fascinated by the wide array of sea creatures, big and small, and dreamed of exploring coral reefs or being a sea captain. The following examples from our Virtual Museum explore how they play upon these fantasies.
