Sirin is a mythological creature of Russian legends, with the head and chest of a beautiful woman and the body of a bird. In the 17-18th century and according to myth, the Sirins lived near Paradise and they would often sing beautiful songs to the saints, foretelling future joys. They also symbolize world harmony (as they live near paradise). People in those times believed only really happy people could hear a Sirin, while only very few could see one because she is as fast and difficult to catch as human happiness. She symbolizes eternal joy and heavenly happiness!
