Gods, Men, Beauties & Beasts
Sometimes a Mixture of All

Here the artist represents the evil and frightening Medusa, who was punished for her vanity, the alluring sirens, who tried to tempt Ulysses, Circe, the witch who turned men into animals. He shows the monsters, Gryphon and Chimaera, and Cerberus, guardian of the gates of hell. He sees heroic and tragic, Agamemnon, and the son who avenged him, Orestes; and beautiful Aphrodite and powerful Athena, and finally fun-loving Bacchus and his friends, the Satyrs.
