Odysseus ACEO

ACEO, 2.5 x 3.5 inches, watercolour and gouache, 2008.
In mythology Odysseus is the son of Laertes, King of Ithaca. He is one of the heroes of the Trojan war, recognised for his cunning and eloquence. It is he who comes up with the idea of the Trojan horse. After the war his journey home takes 20 years and is the basis for Homer's Odyssey. Along the way he encounters the Lotus Eaters, the sorceress Circe, the Cyclops, Sirens, Scylla and enters the underworld.
