The Siren, by John William Waterhouse (circa 1900),
depicted as a fish-chimera.


seductive and promising -
knowing both the past and the future,
her song ends with death.

In Greek mythology, the Sirens (Greek singular: Σειρήν Seirēn; Greek plural: Σειρῆνες Seirēnes) were three dangerous bird-women, portrayed as seductresses who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting music and voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.
