Clytemnestra's Fury

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

If you've ever had to read The Orestes plays by Aeschylus then you know what this is about. I have no idea why I drew this, actually. Anyway, Clytemnestra has just murdered her husband (Agamemnon) and his new seer/concubine (Cassandra) for a number of reasons. I think I'm in my AP English class a lot more than I should be. So yeah, one of her excuses for the act is that Agamemnon killed their daughter as a saccrifice to the gods (Greek tragedy btw) so that he could have the right winds to sail to Troy and fight the good fight! She probably killed the girl out of jealousy, who knows? *shrug*
