Did anyone else notice this?
Why, when depicted in fantasy art, are mermaids, fairies and to a lesser extent angels always naked?
What Guys Said 2
Ah yes with the well placed long hair - I suppose human clothes would bring them closer to our world so by having them naked while covered makes them seem mysterious without raising eyebrows.0
Because nobody can decide what they should be wearing.0
What Girls Said 1
Mermaids: clam bras aren't very realistic and I doubt they would have clothing.
Faeries: I'm not sure, I'm assuming people can't decide what a faerie would wear.
Angels: old depictions probably.0
