Argus The All Seeing

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Argus is most well known from a Greek legend that goes roughly like this: Zeus, ruler of the Olympians, was having an affair with Io behind his wife Hera's back. Obviously he wasn't very good at hiding it, and soon Hera began to suspect them, so Zeus turned Io into a bird to hide her from his wifes wrath. Infuriated, Hera turned to Argus the all seeing and asked him to find Io for her. Argus set his 100 eyes into practice and found the bird, only to be lulled into complete sleep by Hermes before his head was chopped off. When Hera found the body, she felt such guilt that she placed his 100 eyes onto her favourite bird, the peacock. Really, Argus should be some big old giant with 100 eyes, but i thought i'd incorperate Argus before and after his death. Don't look too close!
