Norman translated his passion for Greek myths into numerous pictures. Unknown Seas also relates to the legend of Odysseus, where the ship had to pass the coast and waiting sirens, who lured sailors to their death by singing seductive songs. According to Homer, Odysseus filled his seamen's ears with wax so that they could not hear, and had himself bound to the ship's mast so, in spite of the spellbinding music across the water, the ship could safely pass. In the etching the ship is seen coming toward the sirens waiting on their rock with harpies swirling above and below them.
