I love this one.

I love this too! I fell in love with these figures at the Cycladic Art Museum in Athens - http://www.cycladic.gr/ - and brought home a reproduction. Don't know why they are so endlessly evocative, but they are. I love the red and the slight playing down of the stylisation - that unsettling bit closer to a realistic figure - in your drawing.

Fascinating, I don't know enough about these figures. I love your drawing and did not notice any mistakes!! Will now go check out Jean's link...

Thanks, all of you! Jean, that's a fantastic link, I wish I could be there right now! I love the small vessels and animal figures, too.

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.
