melusina’s secret

Concrete art by Ilia Chidzey

A classic tale of domestic discord.

The sensual water spirit, Melusina possessed a dreadful secret. When she married her adoring husband, she made him swear to never enter her bed chamber on a Saturday. Why Saturday you ask? It appears that Saturday was the one day of the week that Melusina chilled alone and let her hair hang out.

Her foolish hubby, snuck a look one day, and was mortified to discover that his gorgeous wife possessed the body of a serpent. Things went from bad to worse when Melusina realised her husband had broken his vow. In a fit of rage she transformed into a dragon and hurled herself into the skies leaving nothing but a trail of smoke and expletives.

Let that be a lesson to all couples – always keep your promises!Concrete art by Ilia Chidzey
