Silkscreen print from an oil painting on a mythological subject, 1972. The large original is part of the Benaki Museum - N. Hatzikyriakos-Ghikas Gallery Collection. Greek mythology is a steady source of inspiration for the painter in all his creative periods. The subject of this particular work is the realistic representation of the death of the mythical hero Actaeon, who unwittingly saw goddess Artemis (Diana) bathing naked by a fountain on Mount Cithaeron. To punish him, the goddess transformed him into a stag. His own dogs, unable to recognize him, tore him to pieces.
