"Mythological" | oil on canvas | 81 x 81 cm

Odysseus (or Ulysses in Roman texts) is the central figure of Homer in the epic poem Odyssey. Odysseus still has not returned to his kingdom in Ithaca ten years after the fall of Troy where he fought a long and bloody war. Odysseus’s palace is now taken by a group of suitors who court his wife, Penelope, and have set eyes on the throne. Penelope has remained faithful to Odysseus awaiting for his return. There will be another ten years before Odysseus returns to Ithaca, ten years of adventures and travels to foreign lands.
