Description

I have always been inspired by Sirens/Mermaids. The legend of powerful mythical females strongly contrast against the patriarchal views of the times from which the legend came from. In this painting there references of many different cultures. Celtic in the harp, Japanese in the rope bondage, Middle Eastern in the jewellery covering one of Sirens' face and Greek in the golden snakes adorning the main Sirens head.
