If Not Her Voice, Her Beauty Lures Me In


At Aspra, artist Rosalia Biondolillo (I’m venturing to guess it’s Bagheria’s ceramic artist Mirella Pipia.) painted a mermaid on a fishing boat. Although she doesn’t sing like the Sirens from The Odyssey thought to have lived off of Sicily near the straights of Messina, she still lures me in. (Updated: 23 September 2015)
