Stake out – to surveil, and to make a claim

Fire-red reflects the heat

Asserting I for Island, Siren allures and warns. This glass sylph calls up the mythical Sirens from the islands of Ancient Greece, who's songs lured sailors onto rocky shores. Amidst the chaos of closed borders and rising seas, the fire-red figure silently projects the isolation and fragility an Island-form.
