Apollon Daphnephoros by templeofapollon Apollon Daphnephoros by templeofapollon
Springtime image of Apollon Daphnephoros intigrating two ideas I came across in my research. First in the image of Apollon at the temple of Dafne in which the god is described as pouring a libation to the earth. The second is a another description from Delphi which says that Apollon gave a libation to the Erinyes for the death of the Python. Thereofre this image was painted with the intention of use during the spring festivals of the Theban Daphnephoria and the Delphic Herois :)

well considering I am working on a 3 foot by 4 foot painting that I am already into a month now, 2 and a half to 3 weeks is nothing LOL
