Mermaids are mythological sea creatures belonging to the legends. They are an anthropomorphic figure created from a dissected and cut-out line. Originally, in classical antiquity, they were represented as hybrid beings with the face or torso of a woman and the body of a bird.

However, from the Middle Ages onwards they took on a pisciform appearance: beautiful women with a fish tail instead of legs that dwelt in the depths. In both cases they were attributed with an irresistible melodious voice with which they madly attracted sailors.

They possessed an attractive and hypnotic musical voice with which they bewitched the sailors who passed by their shores. Once «in their nets», they would lead them to death.

The fame of the mermaids derives from the episode these beings play with Ulysses in the above-mentioned Homeric poem. During the return journey to his Ithaca homeland, Fort Ulysses, warned by the magician Circe, passes by his island and manages to escape unharmed from the danger of his song, after tying himself to the mast of the ship.

It is accepted customary to assume that the sirens enthralled the sailors. They would make the sailors crash into the nearby reefs, so that they could devour them more easily.
