This fine art counted cross stitch pattern entitled The Fisherman and the Syren designed from a painting by Sir Frederick Leighton shows a fisherman totally captivated by the charming embrace of the Syren whose wiles and seduction are known to be irresistible to men. If you look closely, you will notice that she has wrapped her tail fins around his leg to hold him captive. But little does he know that she has, in fact, lured him to his death in retribution for her fish he has killed. Due to his helplessness, he is sure to perish with no hope of escape. The colors are vivid and sensual, and the artist definitely gets his point across. Only full cross stitches are used in our patterns. No blended colors are used. We only use an abundance of solid colors as it produces a more realistic effect.
