Helen of Troy

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

'The face that launched a thousand ships..' This is Helen of Troy, daughter of Zeus and Leda in Greek mythology, who got stolen away from her husband Minolaus by Trojan prince Paris. And we all know of the legendary Trojan war that followed.. I put a bit of symbolism in this one with the lilies, doves and lyre there. And doing the tile-work was fun! I used authentic colors with the azures, blues and terracotta there. Entirely done in watercolor, a little under A3 size.
