Feejee Mermaid, 19th century—Though P.T. Barnum made the Feejee Mermaids famous, they were originally created in Japanese East Indies fishermen in around 1810. It was a traditional art form in which they created faux mermaids by stitching the upper bodies of apes to the bodies of fish.  P.T. Barnum began exhibiting it in 1842, after a few other showmens’ exhibits failed. (Sources:  1, 2)
