Many of Kiki Smith's works explore the historical and spiritual connections between humans and animals and feature a wide array of creatures the artist sees as symbolic or significant including birds, wolves, deer, cats, owls, bats, mice and others from the context of religion, literature, and folklore. Singing Siren is one such creature. The sound element in the sculpture is by Donald Rubinstein and is triggered by both motion and light.
