After reading Act One in The Tempest, I found myself most interested in WHAT Ariel was. Was it a boy, a girl, an animal? I searched for images of this creature and came across this image. I thought it depicted my vision perfectly. It is an it. It is not a boy, a girl, or an animal. It is everything. This adds to the idea of magic. Magic is something that is unexplainable and unnatural, much like what Ariel is.
