"Fight over the body of Patroclus", latex paint on canvas, 55x60", 2018
Link in profile
After the death of Patroclus, the dear companion of the great hero Achilles, other Greek heroes fought hard to protect his body from the Trojan forces. Seen as a great moral victory for both sides, the body was furiously fought for and over. "So Ajax stood his ground over brave Patroclus now - the fighting Atrides right beside him, standing fast". But the Trojans would not give up,their "hearts fired with hopes of dragging Patroclus' body out from under Ajax... but the Argives faced them, standing fast in a ring around Patroclus, one fury seizing their hearts." - The Iliad, Homer
