Canto 18 ‘The Fall of Phaethon’ (2016)

‘He (Zeus) thundered, and balancing a lightning bolt in his right hand threw it from eye-level at the charioteer, removing him, at the same moment, from the chariot and from life, extinguishing fire with fierce fire. Thrown into confusion the horses, lurching in different directions, wrench their necks from the yoke and throw off the broken harness. Here the reins lie, there the axle torn from the pole, there the spokes of shattered wheels, and the fragments of the wrecked chariot are flung far and wide.

But Phaethon, flames ravaging his glowing hair, is hurled headlong, leaving a long trail in the air, as sometimes a star does in the clear sky, appearing to fall although it does not fall. Far from his own country, in a distant part of the world, the river god Eridanus takes him from the air, and bathes his smoke-blackened face.’ Ovid – Metamorphosis

Clearance!

I have too many paintings and not enough wall so, posed with this conundrum I have 2 choices:

  1. Build more wall
  2. Sell a painting

…sadly, as we live in a rented property it has to be No 2 … therefore  Canto 15 ‘Icarus’ and ‘Canto 17 – Acheron’ are now priced to sell.

 


Grab an original piece of artwork and hang it on your wall …because they need nice new homes and it’s more practical than building more wall.

 

P.S I’m also saving for a wedding ……
