The Voyage of Ulysses: The hero
faces an epic temptation
Ulysses has plugged the ears of his crew so they cannot hear the maidens' song. He alone, bound hand and foot to the mast, dares to Listen. The Sirens are irresistible. And deadly: no man before Ulysses has heard their enchanting voices or beheld their perfect beautyâ€”and lived. For the blind Greek poet Homer, they are dread embodiments of the dark, destructive side of love. Now sculptor Alan Brunettin captures their fierce seductive power in the enduring medium of cameo-carved Incolay Stone. -The Sirens- is a searing image of one man's struggle with, and triumph over, the temptations of the flesh.
