PANEL TEXT:

Lasiren (La Sirène)
The enchantress. She is the feminine spirit of the ocean who bestows love and good fortune. Often depicted with a trumpet, as she is the patron of music, the long-haired mermaid is also shown with a comb and mirror, which reflects her beauty. She is said to be the wife of Agwe, ruler of the seas.
