Syrens, mermaids, sea nymphs ---- all are mythological seductresses of man and his quest for love, beauty and immortality. Syrens lure men with their song to shores where they live no longer of this world but in the netherworld of the seductress. Syrens, mermaids, and nymphs have been depicted in all histories of the world in many varied forms, but usually as half woman, half animal, bird, or fish. She's had many names and adorned churches, cemeteries and public buildings. Syrens are the most romantic of all mythological creatures. This 19th Century etching has truly captured the passion of the seduction, the passion of the sea, the thrill of new-found love and the exhilaration of the First Kiss.
