The painting was completed on a very loose theme of water and tries to capture the dark side of the story of 'Thamyris'.
In Greek mythology, Thamyris, son of Philammon and the nymph Argiope, was a Thracian singer who was so proud of his skill that he boasted he could out sing the Muses. He competed against them and lost. As punishment for his presumption they blinded him, and took away his ability to make poetry and to play the lyre. This outline of the story is told in the Iliad.
The painting above is pre-fixed with the moniker 'Untitled' as although I had an 'atmosphere' in mind when painting them that initial idea evolved - so my original title is not definite.
