Lost to Eternity: Turning Point of Orpheus upon Eurydices ascent from Tartarus


'Lost to Eternity: Turning Point of Orpheus upon Eurydices ascent from Tartarus'
(Digital Hybrid: mixed-media on canvas board, scanned and manipulated)

My favorite piece of artwork - so far. I really enjoy the ancient myths - in addition to philosophy and Shakespeare, of course.

This piece was done as an experiment with tissue paper and diluted white glue (Elmer's). Many weeks after it was dry, I scanned it and played around with it in Photoshop PSE. Submitted it to a contest, too.

Click on the image for a larger version. Can you see Orpheus' lyre in his right hand? It looks like a ram's head!
