Ganymede, by Leith Semmens.
Quill pen applied acrylic and opalescent ink drawing. This original drawing is composed of parallel lines of ink colour that when viewed from a distance reveal the final image. Ink drawings should ideally be displayed away from direct sunlight to avoid colour loss and ideally framed behind UV protected glass.
Ganymede was the favourite of the God Zeus. Myth says that Zeus was so overcome with love for Ganymede he transformed himself into an eagle and carried the young Ganymede to heaven. When Ganymede was later killed, crocus flowers grew from the ground where his blood was spilled.
My version shows Zeus as an eagle tattoo on Ganymede's back on a background of blood red flowers.
