The Alluring Maidens (2020)
Half-birds, half-beautiful maidens, the sirens were singing enchantresses capable of luring passing sailors to their islands, and, subsequently, to their doom. It was said that the sirens' dwelling place was a ghastly sight to behold; a great heap of bones lay all around them, and a copious amounts of shipwrecks surrounding them. Their most notable mentions are in "The Odyssey" by Homer, and the story about the abduction of Persephone.
