The Sirens’ Arrival

We hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s animation, featuring the Sirens. In celebration of these scary winged ladies, we’ve posted this album of siren images from throughout antiquity. The album includes vases, sculptures, and terracottas, now housed in the British Museum, the J.P. Getty Museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, and the Ure Museum of Greek Archaeology. Panoply has lots more about the Siren myths on the Siren animation info page. http://www.panoply.org.uk/sirens-resources.html#.Uk29AFJwZYc
