This is a conceptual narrative portrait series meant to reinvent a story taken from classical literature. An adaptation of The Odyssey, setting takes place in WWI with Odysseus as a Canadian soldier stuck in the private study of the Cyclops.....A brutish Austro-Hungarian General! The scene is portraying Captain O'Desseus' calm confidence and cunning just after he has smashed the General Polyphemitz' monocle, blinding him in order that he may escape at his own leisure. The second part of my WWI Odyssey series, Polyphemus the cyclops is shown as a belligerent Austro-Hungarian General. His downfall via Odysseus is a result of his excessive opulence and drinking habits. Therefore the backstory I created for him relates to his past; in the portrait are his three squadmates in the Franco-Prussian war, friends he lost due to his overambitious goals. From then on, he has risen quickly in rank, but spends his time drinking away his painful memories. Read Less
