For the lonesome seafarer, the mermaid was a figure symbolic of both lust and peril. Mermaids were said to marry Irish sailors until their very nature called them back to the sea, abandoning their land-borne family in spite of whatever love they may have nurtured. Many a man – half-drowned – told tales of scaled merfolk who lured them into frigid waters, embracing them longingly with webbed hands and pulling them deeper underneath the surface before the men awakened from their seduction. Sirena offers a promise of discovery with a woven series of tactile loops and layers, like the scales of a mermaid’s tail flickering in the moonlight. It whispers of something in the distance, hidden behind a veil of crashing waves on rocky bluffs, perhaps worth the risk to explore if only the traveler would brave it.
