      About this Artwork

      This is the second part of the story of how Odysseus escapes from Cyclops Polyphemus's cave after blinding him, as according to the Odyssey. The escape scene, illustrated on a Stamnos pot, depicts Batman as hanging on to the belly o a ram, which was in fact how the original hero escaped. This is one of the 9 prints from the collection entitled Elysium Fields. These prints are based on the hero archetype that has lasted many centuries, suffering minor "adjustments" along time. The starting point of this collection of prints is Greek mythology which is in close relation with Comic book strips from nowadays. I chose to emphasize this connection by replacing the ancient heroes with comic book heroes. The scenes in which the heroes appear are like the illustration on the Greek ceramic pots. The Greek heroes: Hercules, Achilles, Odysseus, Jason and Atalanta. The comic book heroes are: Hellboy, Wolverine, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. The title refers to the heaven for heroes from Greek mythology.
