ARTPECKERS Sirens 2IN1 Backpack belongs to the Odyssey collection, a series of statement prints accessories, inspired by Odysseus’ adventures narrated by Homer. Sirens, tempted song. In order for them not to be tempted by their song, Circe counseled them to plug their ears with beeswax and keep on rowing until they were in the clear. But Odysseus wanted to hear this lovely song of the Sirens and he ordered his men to tie him up on the mast, so that he would be able to listen but not follow them.
“ἀλλὰ παρεξελάαν, ἐπὶ δ᾿ οὔατ᾿ ἀλεῖψαι ἑταίρων
κηρὸν δεψήσας μελιηδέα, μή τις ἀκούσῃ
τῶν ἄλλων: ἀτὰρ αὐτὸς ἀκουέμεν αἴ κ᾿ ἐθέλῃσθα,δησάντων σ᾿ ἐν νηὶ θοῇ χεῖράς τε πόδας τε
ὀρθὸν ἐν ἱστοπέδῃ, ἐκ δ᾿ αὐτοῦ πείρατ᾿ ἀνήφθω,
ὄφρα κε τερπόμενος ὄπ᾿ ἀκούσῃς Σειρήνοιιν.”
Ομήρου Οδύσσεια (ραψωδία μ’, στ.47-52)
