Sirens and Odysseus
By vangoto, Updated
This storyboard does not have a description.
Odysseus prepares his men for the Sirens by putting wax in their ears so that they cannot hear the Sirens.
Odysseus instructs his crew to tie him up so that he can hear the song of the sirens but not go towards them.
"the two Sirens, noting our fast ship off their point, made ready, and they sang."
"and I tried to say 'Untie me!' to the crew, jerking my brows; but they bent steady to their oars."
Perimedes and Eurylochus tie more rope around Odysseus to hold him still. The boat continues onward.
"My faithful company ... peeling off the wax that I had laid thick on their ears; then set me free."
