Her husband, Agamemnon, sacrificed her daughter to save his own skin, so she waited for him to get home from war, gave him a hero's welcome, then stabbed him as he got out the bathtub. Nice lady.

Oooo... I read that story. I love the look on her face!
The arm (past the elbow) is a little short in comparison to the rest of her and the hand is also a little small, but otherwise I love this!
Her daughter was called Iphgenia, No? Something along those lines. But I can't spell it. XD

The folds in the dress... *_*
Me likes...

Iphigenia was the one he had to sacrifice, Electra was the other daughter that, with her brother, killed Clytemnestra.

I have to do a monologue of hers to try out for this play that has nothing to do with the story. Nice picture. I really like it.
