Thetis 2019 © Oriana Gatta / Gicleé Print / 16″ x 20” (unframed)

This piece is inspired by Madeline Miller‘s rendering of classical Greek figure, Thetis, in her novel, The Song of Achilles. In Miller’s version, Thetis’ rape by King Peleus is an orchestrated attempt by Olympian gods to keep Thetis in her proper, disempowered place.
