This is a brand new piece for 2012. Its overall feel is of the Power of the great greek God, so I have oversized his head to gain this effect. The narration of this moment that the clay is telling is of Theter, mother of Acillies, begging Zeus to protect her son from the battles of Troy. The bathing in the River of Styx becomes vital as the narrative path follows the narrative of this moment seen here. I have used Cupid in the scene to give emphasis to Zeus's physical relationship with so many Goddess's within the Pantheon.
