Cassandra's dream by hypnothalamus Cassandra's dream by hypnothalamus
Cassandra's dream

In Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. Her beauty caused Apollo to grant her the gift of prophecy. However, when she did not return his love, Apollo placed a curse on her so that no one would ever believe her predictions. She is a figure both of the epic tradition and of tragedy, where her combination of deep understanding and powerlessness exemplify the ironic condition of mankind. (from Wikipedia)

(acrylic on 30x24cm canvas - framed)

update - replaced the photo with a direct scan of the painting

Simple yet strikingly perfect. She really looks as if she wants my attention, she wants to tell me something but can't. Very intriguing.
