They were formerly handmaidens of the goddess Persephone and when she was secretly abducted by Haides, Demeter gave them the bodies of birds to assist in the search.

They are just crying to be ridden!
Roman writers linked them more closely to the sea, as daughters of Phorcys. Their number is variously reported as from two to eight. According to Hyginus , Sirens were fated to live only until the mortals who heard their songs were able to pass by them.
It is said that Hera , queen of the gods, persuaded the Sirens to enter a singing contest with the Muses. The Muses won the competition and then plucked out all of the Sirens' feathers and made crowns out of them.
One of the crew, however, the sharp-eared hero Butes , heard the song and leapt into the sea, but he was caught up and carried safely away by the goddess Aphrodite.
Odysseus was curious as to what the Sirens sang to him, and so, on the advice of Circe , he had all of his sailors plug their ears with beeswax and tie him to the mast.
He ordered his men to leave him tied tightly to the mast, no matter how much he might beg. When he heard their beautiful song, he ordered the sailors to untie him but they bound him tighter.
When they had passed out of earshot, Odysseus demonstrated with his frowns to be released. Statues of Sirens in a funerary context are attested since the classical era, in mainland Greece , as well as Asia Minor and Magna Graecia.
The so-called "Siren of Canosa"— Canosa di Puglia is a site in Apulia that was part of Magna Graecia —was said to accompany the dead among grave goods in a burial.
She appeared to have some psychopomp characteristics, guiding the dead on the afterlife journey. The cast terracotta figure bears traces of its original white pigment.
The woman bears the feet, wings and tail of a bird. The Sirens were called the Muses of the lower world. Classical scholar Walter Copland Perry — observed: "Their song, though irresistibly sweet, was no less sad than sweet, and lapped both body and soul in a fatal lethargy, the forerunner of death and corruption.
The term " siren song " refers to an appeal that is hard to resist but that, if heeded, will lead to a bad conclusion.
Later writers have implied that the Sirens were cannibals , based on Circe 's description of them "lolling there in their meadow, round them heaps of corpses rotting away, rags of skin shriveling on their bones.
Once he hears to his heart's content, sails on, a wiser man. We know all the pains that the Greeks and Trojans once endured on the spreading plain of Troy when the gods willed it so— all that comes to pass on the fertile earth, we know it all!

This richly illustrated, ownvoices middle grade graphic novel draws on Vietnamese folk and fairy tales and a long-lost mermaid story, The Sea Fairies by L.
Frank Baum. The underwater adventures star Trot, a California girl who loves to surf, her one-eyed, pirate-themed tabby cat, Cap'n Bill, Trot's Grandpa, who is forgetful and chronically gets lost, and fantastically beautiful, Art Nouveau-clothed mermaids who also happen to be ferocious warriors.
One fateful day, Trot has a surfing accident This richly illustrated, ownvoices middle grade graphic novel draws on Vietnamese folk and fairy tales and a long-lost mermaid story, The Sea Fairies by L.
One fateful day, Trot has a surfing accident while her Grandpa naps at home, and splashes into a royal battle between two undersea kingdoms, serpents vs.
By luck Cap'n Bill, who surfs with Trot and was sinking fast, takes a last swipe with his last hissing breath at the snakes attacking the sirens and saves the day.
The story moves quickly from there, from land to sea and back again, traveling through evocative blue to turquoise to dark black ocean settings as Trot uncovers more mysteries exploring the Sea Sirens' kingdom and the mysterious King of Serpents.
The illustrations throughout are beautifully drawn, elegantly ornate, with hairstyles and fashions in the Asian undersea kingdom that Gustav Klimt would recognize.
Young readers grades 3 and up will definitely clamour for more adventures with Trot and Cap'n Bill!
Jan 17, Alissa rated it liked it. Not Fantastic or super memorable. But cute. Characters were mostly kind of dull, the dialogue read like something that had been translated, and the resolution was kind of But still cute.
A good concept I wish was executed better because I DO love mermaids and cats and this should have been the ultimate story for me. But again, still cute.
And pretty artwork! The character of Cap'N Bill saved this one! Jul 10, Ruth rated it liked it Shelves: , graphic-novel.

Trot loves surfing. When she goes out in stormy waters with her cat, Cap'n Bill, they wipe out in the big waves. Trot is bonked on the head by her board and comes to in a fantastic underwater world under the care of the sea sirens who rescued her.
The sea sirens have made it so they can breathe underwater, and Cap'n Bill can even talk. The sea sirens are incredibly thankful because Cap'n Bill scared off the evil Serpents.
Surprisingly, Trot's grandfather also shows up, having followed Trot to Trot loves surfing. Surprisingly, Trot's grandfather also shows up, having followed Trot to the beach.
The three land dwellers are amazed by the sea sirens queendom, and the sirens believe they may be the answer to their ongoing war with the Serpents.
But Trot had snuck out of the house, Grandpa is not supposed to be out either because of his dementia, and they both are going to be in a heap of trouble when they get home so late.
But who can resist exploring the amazing siren world and helping them with their troubles? If you read the dedication page you'll see that Amy Chu dedicated this to the inspiration of L.
Frank Baum, and there are small nods to Dorothy's adventure in Oz in this story. He's a sweet guy and fun character.
He also speaks Vietnamese frequently, which is transliterated on the page and translated for English speakers. I like the inclusion of how immigrants frequently switch back and forth between their native language and English.
It rings so true to life. And that isn't the only Vietnamese part of the story. The architecture and dress of the sea sirens is definitely influenced by traditional Vietnamese art styles.
And I loved that. Speaking of artwork, it is beautiful. You are totally allowed to pick this up just to look at the illustrations.
They are vibrant, imaginative, and well-deserving of a shiny sticker. I'm looking at you, Caldecott. Ok, back to characters. Cap'n Bill was a fun, snarky character once he gets the ability to speak.
Imagine what your cat would say to you with a sudden ability to talk. The sea sirens are probably the nicest sirens in literature. No singing sailors to doom here.
They do fight sea snakes displaying their tough sides, but there is an unexpected twist in why the Serpents are invading the sirens' territory.
Trot is a likable character. She does make mistakes, but she also forges peace in situations where it is needed, learn from her mistakes, and love her Grandpa even when he kind of annoys her.
And readers can debate whether or not what she experienced was real or a result of the knock on the head. This was one of my favorite graphic novel reads of the year.
I love having the Southeast Asian flavor to share with our Southeast Asian students. The fantasy adventure is fun and imaginative. I like the messages, and the nods to Oz.
And I adore the artwork. Highly recommended! Notes on content: No language issues. No sexual content or decency issues.
The battle between the Serpents and the sirens is conveyed without much violence actually being shown. The worst injury on page is when Trot gets bonked on the head by her surf board, and that isn't very serious.
Trot is disobedient at one point, but learns her lesson. View 2 comments. May 14, Hal Schrieve rated it it was amazing Shelves: graphic-novels , fantasy.
Look at the cover and TELL me this book isn't gorgeous. Delicious, bright sea-washed watercolor digital watercolor? She's at the beach every day after school, half-babysitting her granddad, who loves to fish but is frequently forgetful; his dementia often makes him believe he is still in Vietnam, or forget familiar people or settings for periods of time.
When her grandfather wanders off one day while Trot is in the water, Mom bans surfing trips-- but independent Trot races to the beach anyway, with Granddad not far behind.
When a big wave comes along, however, she and her cat are knocked far down into the ocean, right into the middle of a skirmish between the Serpents and the Sirens the sirens resemble mermaids, with curling, seahorselike tails and immaculate, excitingly decorated hair.
Cats terrify snakes, and so the serpents scatter, leaving Capn Bill a hero -- the sirens grant both land creatures the ability to breathe beneath the water, and invite them for a feast.
The queen of their kingdom isn't especially pleased that they have been given the power to breathe underwater, but recognizes their right to stay as guests-- but things get more complicated when it turns out that Granddad has wound up in their city, too.
She is usually worshipped by those who practice Vodun sometimes called voodoo, although this term often has negative connotations. She married her brother, the god Aganju, and was raped by her son Orungan.
She not only symbolizes motherhood, but also sexuality. She is sometimes portrayed as a large fish or as a traditional half-human, half-fish mermaid.
She is usually depicted as a light-skinned woman with long black hair and a rainbow crown or halo. In Africa, she is sometimes depicted as a dark-skinned woman, sometimes holding a serpent or a mirror and comb, symbols that might represent vanity or femininity.
She was the goddess of both sea and land and one of the most important goddesses or spirits in this tradition. She brought animals into view so that hunters could find them, and also hid animals to prevent them from being hunted.
In one version of her origin story, Sedna mistakenly marries a bird spirit who is disguised as a man and moves to an island with him. Her father comes by boat to rescue her, and the bird spirit flaps its wings, causing a storm.
Her fingers become the whales and walruses and other sea animals, and she becomes the mother of all sea creatures and a spirit of the sea.
Ala-Muki was a mythical river dragon-woman of ancient Hawaiian mythology who lived in the Waialua River. Ancient Hawaiians believed in spirit-gods known as kupuas, who could appear in either animal or human form.
The greatest of the kupuas were the dragon gods, and the oldest dragon gods resided in rivers and lakes. Later the number was usually increased to three, and they were located on the west coast of Italy , near Naples.
They were variously said to be the daughters of the sea god Phorcys or of the river god Achelous by one of the Muses.
Odysseus himself wanted to hear their song but had himself tied to the mast so that he would not be able to steer the ship off its course. After she was carried off by Hades , they sought her everywhere and finally prayed for wings to fly across the sea.
The gods granted their prayer. In some versions Demeter turned them into birds to punish them for not guarding Persephone.
In art the Sirens appeared first as birds with the heads of women and later as women, sometimes winged, with bird legs. The Sirens seem to have evolved from an ancient tale of the perils of early exploration combined with an Asian image of a bird-woman.
Anthropologists explain the Asian image as a soul-bird—i. They sit in a meadow; men's corpses lie heaped up all round them, mouldering upon the bones as the skin decays.
You must row past there; you must stop the ears of all your crew with sweet wax that you have kneaded, so that none of the rest may hear the song.
But if you yourself are bent on hearing, then give them orders to bind you both hand and foot as you stand upright against the mast-stay, with the rope-ends tied to the mast itself; thus you may hear the two Seirenes' voices and be enraptured.
If you implore your crew and beg them to release you, then they must bind you fast with more bonds again. When your crew have rowed past the Seirenes.
I will tell you of them, so that in full knowledge we may die or in full knowledge escape, it may be, from death and doom.
Her first command was to shun the Seirenes Sirens --their enchanting notes, their flowery meadow. I alone was to hear their song, she said.
You for your part must bind me with galling ropes as I stand upright against the mast-stay, with the rope-ends tied to the mast itself; then I shall stay there immovably.
And if I beg and beseech you to set me free, you must bind me hard with more ropes again. Meanwhile the trim ship sped swiftly on to the island of the Seirenes, wafted still be the favouring breeze.
Then of a sudden the wind dropped and everything became hushed and still, because some divinity lulled the waters. My men stood up, furled the sails and stowed them in the ship's hold, then sat at the thwarts and made the sea white with their polished oars of fir.
I myself, with my sharp sword, cut a great round of wax into little pieces and set about kneading them with all the strength I had.
Under my mighty hands, and under the beams of the lordly sun-god [Helios] whose father is Hyperion, the wax quickly began to melt, and with it I sealed all my comrades' ears in turn.
Then they bound me fast, hand and foot, with the rope-ends tied to the mast itself, then again sat down and dipped their oars in the whitening sea.
Pause with your ship; listen to our song. Never has nay man passed this way in his dark vessel and left unheard the honey-sweet music from our lips; first he has taken his delight, then gone on his way a wiser man.
We know of all the sorrows in the wide land of Troy that Argives and Trojans bore because the gods would needs have it so; we know all things that come to pass on the fruitful earth.
I twitched my brows to sign to the crew to let me go, but they leaned to their oars and rowed on; Eurylokhos Eurylochus and Perimedes quickly stood up and bound me with more ropes and with firmer hold.
But when they had rowed well past the Seirenes--when music and words could be heard no more--my trusty comrades were quick to take out the wax that had sealed their ears, and to rescue and unbind myself.
But the island was hardly left behind when I saw smoke above the heavy breakers and heard a great noise [the whirlpool of Kharybdis Charybdis ].
One played the cithara, the second sang, and the third played the flute, and in this manner they used to persuade passing sailors to remain with them.
From the thighs down they had the shape of birds. As Odysseus sailed past, he wanted to hear their song, so, following Kirke's Circe's instructions, he plugged the ears of his comrades with wax, and had them tie him to the mast, When the Sierenes persuaded him to stay with them, he begged to be set free, but his men tied him even tighter, and thus he sailed past.
An oracle had said that the Seirenes would die if a ship ever made it past them; and indeed they died. What half-maiden Fury-hound [Skylla Scylla ]?
What barren nightingale [Seiren Siren ], slayer of the Kentauroi Centaurs , Aitolis or Kouretis Curetis , shall not with her varied melody tempt them to waste away through fasting from food?
