    This reminds me of a Greek amphora… maybe one located on a new found wreck in the Aegean!

    It’s by Picasso, I havent been able to find the original piece. Could have been a cocktail napkin.

    Thanks for the hint! As near as I can tell, this is ‘Sirène de Varsovie au Marteau’, drawn by Picasso on an apartment wall in Poland during his trip there in 1948. Very neat story.

    The shield and hammer are hints that the mermaid is the one that is the symbol of the city of Warsaw.
