Siren's Song Neckpiece


If you didn't get to the Glitzern Exhibition - "Summon the Kracken" here is the piece I exhibited. It is made from Black linen, bone beads and sterling silver.
The Penguin Dictionary of Classical Mythology by Pierre Grimal says this on the subject of the Sirens.......
"The sirens lived on an island on the Mediterranean and attracted passing sailors with their music. The ships would approach too close to the coast and thereby come to grief.
The Sirens would then devour the sailors."
There is more to this story but I'll leave that for another day.
