Images of Riyadh: Mermaid Abaya

Whoever thinks that Riyadh is conservative has clearly not seen this unique abaya with a mermaid painted on it. The lady was generous enough to allow me to take a picture of it (sorry for the blurriness).

How often does one see a half-naked mermaid with birds flying around? This is the same country where Starbucks has changed its logo and does not feature the mermaid on the outside of their stores (they only show waves). I applaud her courage.
