This is an iconic illustration by German artist Richard Edmond Flatters (1822-1876). I love the dynamics in this etching and I'm not going to tell you who/what it's supposed to be unless you ask me. I'd like to offer it simply as a breath-taking, fantastic, mythical creature. I irreverently call it "Can't a Guy Just Go for a Swim?" My original 1903 postcard is a black and white print. I have colorized my version. Please note that my postcard has a lot of white space at the bottom, so I cropped most of that off, to focus just on the image. So this card is not typical postcard size; it is about 4 by 5.5 inches.
