Sea Siren Pillow in Many Colors
In the sixteenth century, it was well known that Sirens, or Mermaids, were part woman, part dolphin and part lion. They lived on the island of Anthemoessa, between Sicily and Italy. Anthemoessa was protected by huge boulders that dealt certain destruction to ships that ventured too closely. Sirens had an irresistible attraction to humans; it is said they could shed their fish tail in order to attract men. It is a well-known fact that countless sailors have been saved by mermaids after falling overboard. However, their singing seems to present some danger. This one shown in turquoise.
The all-weather mermaid pillow measures 19”x19”x5” and is hand-painted on an island in Puget Sound in Washington State, where there is highly variable weather conditions. This indoor-outdoor pillow stands up to them all. The nontoxic textile paints are weather-proof and the cover can be spot cleaned, hosed down or gentle machine washed. Removable polyester fiberfill insert is machine washable and dryable.
