Odysseus and Scylla by PinkParasol Odysseus and Scylla by PinkParasol
"Odysseus and Scylla"
40"x30"
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.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!

I was wandering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges lifeisinfinity.eu5.org/infinit… (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)

Lot of thanks for your time ;)

I love this art! Could I commission you to do Talos, the bronze giant forged by Hephaestus?

Great work! It looks as if the ship and it's crew are doomed.
