6” x 6” x 1.5”. Acrylic, paper, coral, enameled copper and thread on canvas.
Orpheus was a mythical figure born to a Thracian king and the muse Calliope and known for his musical ability on the lyre, a gift from Apollo, the god of music. On his wedding day to Eurydice, Eurydice was killed by a viper. Unable to let her go, Orpheus traveled into the underworld in the hopes of reclaiming his wife and bringing her back alive.
Hades and Persephone, the God and Goddess of the underworld, allowed Orpheus to take Eurydice on the condition that he not turn back to look at her following him until both had reached the upper world, a dictate that he found he was unable to obey. When he turned to look at her, she vanished forever.
