THE DAILY VIEW: Iara

I pass this image of Iara often during late night walks. On the darkened street, she is glowing.


More from Wikipedia...

Iara is the name of a figure from Brazilian mythology based on ancient Tupi and Guaraní mythology. The word derives from Old Tupi yîara = y + îara (water + lord/lady) = lady of the lake (water queen). She is seen as either a water nymph, siren, or mermaid depending upon the context of the story told about her.
