A3 ART PRINT FROM ISSUE 3 - THE RAGE OF CYCLOPS
Based on the 9th book of Homer's Odyssey, this illustration tells the tale of the Cyclopes Polyphemus, son of Poseidon. Upon being taunted by Odysseus and his men, Polyphemus' rage was so great that he launched a rock at the ship of Odysseus, causing huge waves which drew the men back to shore.
In Issue 3 we explore the many myths and legends that surround natural rock formations around the world, and delve into these stories that are still told today. Included in our explorations are the Cyclopean Isles, whose name is derived from the belief that the island was formed by the rocks that Polyphemus hurled into the ocean.
Alongside the beautiful illustration is a except from The Odyssey telling the tale of how the Cyclops exacted his revenge and inadvertently named this group of Italian Islands.
This is a high quality digital A3 print and is printed on heavyweight 300gsm natural recycled card stock. It comes signed and numbered in an edition of 300.
