Odysseus and Scylla

"Odysseus and Scylla"
oils on wood
August 2012

A commissioned piece for my "Women in Mythology" series. It is the scene from the Odyssey where Odysseus has to make the difficult journey through a narrow passage on his way home, and sail between two monsters. The once beautiful sea nymph turned monster, Scylla on one side. And the daughter of Poseidon and Gaia, a naid turned whirlpool, Charybdis, on the other. Athena is represented as an owl, guiding Odysseus on his journey seen flying in the front of the ship.
