Lorelei Picture

Modelled by Artist Rita Ria

According to German legend,
there was once a beautiful maiden, named Lorelei,
who threw herself headlong into the river in despair over
a faithless lover.
Upon her death she was transformed into a siren and could
from that time on be heard singing on a rock along the Rhine River,
near St. Goar. Her hypnotic music lured sailors to their death.
The legend is based on an echoing rock with that name near
Sankt Goarshausen, Germany
