Circe Invidiosa

 

Circe (Κίρκη) is an immortal sorceress in Greek mythology, daughter of a titan and a nymph. In Ovid’s Metamorphosis, Circe is invidiosa (Latin for jealous) of the nymph Scylla, a rival in love, and so poisons the waters in which Scylla bathes, causing her to be transformed into a devouring sea monster. My render is inspired by seeing John William Waterhouse’s canvas of this scene at the National Gallery of Australia.
