A Dream in Venice

by Štěpán Zavřel


It's nighttime. Marco, in his little bed, thinks about his drawing. In the foreground he painted a little mermaid, and in the background Venice, lying under the sea.

Suddenly, someone knocks on the window. It’s a little mermaid, who says to Marco: "Thank you for putting me in your picture! But you've never seen Venice at the bottom of the sea... I've come to get you to show you!" Marco is amazed... behind the glass is the sea, you can see algae and little fish! "Put on this suit and fins and scuba mask, says the little mermaid, so you'll swim more easily!"
