I had the idea of painting Circe the Greek goddess after reading a wonderful book by Madaline Miller . Circe was exiled to an island for eternity where she discovered she had a gift for sorcery using plants, she tamed lions to keep her company. One day some sailors who came across her island, attacked her, thinking she was a week helpless woman on her own. After that, she was determined not to let that happen again and made a potion to turn any subsequent threatening men into pigs. To me, she represents women claiming their independence and fulfilling their potential, I represented this further in the painting by depicting Circe freeing the Iris flowers from the bind weed.

For UK customers the painting will be sent ready to hang in a box. If ordering from outside the UK the canvas will be sent rolled in a tube with the wooden stretcher bars which will need to be re-assembled and re-stretched (Shipping cost is included to Uk and £35 to everywhere else)
