Arion Dolphin Objet
In a misty sea
Save me, and guide me
Upon you, I sing
Named after the poet Arion of Lesbos island, legend says that he had amassed a fortune serving as a court performer and was returning home. The crew of the ship robbed him of his earnings, and as they were about to toss him overboard, he pleaded to sing one last song. Singing his own dirge, he then threw himself overboard. Instead of drowning, Arion was saved by dolphins that had been moved by his performance.
