Illustration Friday - Song
What a great topic!
I love movies that break out in song at any chance (Moulin Rouge, Sound of Music, Wizard of Oz) but when I thought of the topic 'song' i kept imagining in my mind the Greek Sirens Pisinoe, Aglaope and Thelxiepi - from the ancient world of Greek Mythology. I imagine their songs to be sweet and eerie luring all the sailors into their trance.
The myth states the Sirens to be part bird part human but they are also portrayed as part fish part human.
