Achilles ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolour and gouache, 2008.
A portrait of Achilles, a hero of the Trojan war. He was the son of the nymph Thetis and Peleus, the king of the Myrmidons. His friend/lover Patroclus was killed by Hector and Achilles revenged himself by kiling Hector and desecrating his body. He was later killed when Hector's brother Paris shot him with an arrow in the heel.
