Who was Cassandra?


  • In the Iliad, she is described as the loveliest of the daughters of Priam (King of Troy), and gifted with prophecy. The god Apollo loved her, but she spurned him. As a punishment, he decreed that no one would ever believe her. So when she told her fellow Trojans that the Greeks were hiding inside the wooden horse...well, you know what happened.

I really love this print -- and also the chance to see the plate and the series of mountains, hanging on their thread.

Happy new year!

A radiance of black gathered round the star!

That is wonderful!

Thank you for this beautiful print, Beth - I love it. Une bonne annee a toi et a Jonathan (this laptop refuses to do accents).

So starkly beautiful.

Could this not become a 'no text' Christmas card? Glorious!

Beautiful and so dramatic! Thanks for the print and card so very much - such a lovely surprise after admiring these here first.
Happy New Year to you and Jonathan from the both of us.

(I never did print any cards this Christmas for the first time in decades.)

Beautiful, beautiful.
Note for the record... While many people take down their decorations at Epiphany that's when I move the kings up-close to the creche which stays in place chez moi until Feb 2. Why stop celebrating just when there IS something to celebrate?

Very nice indeed!

I too am delighted with this print, and to see the process is an extra dollop of pleasure.

Epiphany, a lovely word which marks an intersection (for me at least) of the devout and the secular. But then Joyce, by his own admission, never escaped his Catholic upbringing.

Plus another echoed epiphany. There's been a story in the newspapers - I glanced only at the headlines and photos, I fear - about some lino-cuts by Picasso which have been acquired by some organisation or other. I write from a position of total ignorance but the simplified style of his and your images seems to have a good deal in common. I have no idea whether this observation might please you or whether my reaction is essentially childish.
