This image exudes a lively atmosphere, but its tone takes a sinister turn when you delve into its source! It originates from an Irish tale titled The Wonderful Tune, featured in The Lilac Fairy Book (1910) edited by Andrew Lang and adorned with enchanting illustrations by Warwick Goble. (Fun fact: There were 12 books in the Rainbow Fairy series, each named after a color!) The accompanying caption to this image intriguingly states, "The Sea-lady allures Maurice into the Sea," and indeed, she does! Maurice, the finest piper in Munster, finds himself enticed by the green-haired sea lady and her fish companions, leading to a mesmerizing dance that draws him into the water. See our entire Storybook & Literature Collection!
