Odysseus and the Sirens

lokosuperfluoLEGOman’ Odysseus And The Sirens

Homer’s the Odyssey is one of the greatest adventures of all time. Just look at that Lego Odysseus, he looks so happy to see those Sirens. Good thing he is tied up, and those sailors have wax in their ears. Who knows what kind of evil things those Sirens would do.

Odysseus and the Sirens is an MOC created by Flickr user lokosuperfluoLEGOman.

“One morning, he and his crew, reached a small island, where the half-bird, half-woman creatures, the sirens, dwelled. This monstrous creatures had the most beautiful voice any man could have heard, so when a ship passed in front of them, they sang to the mariners, leading them melodiously to their deaths in the sharp edges of the shore rocks. Odysseus, aware of that, told his crew to put on wax earplugs, so they couldn’t hear the sirens’ song. Besides, he told them to tie him to the mast, for he wanted to listen to the sirens’ song, being sure he will not be able to fulfill the sirens’ macabre plan.” – Homer’s The Odyssey

  1. I love this masterpiece! I love how you did the Sirens. Btw, how did you do them? I’m trying to make my own ver, but they don’t look like yours. How’d you do them?
