Nephele

This marker piece was completed in July of 2018. It was worked on over several sessions spread out over several months.   Nephele is from Greek Mythology. She was created from clouds in the image of Hera, by Zeus, to test King Ixion's lust for Hera. Ixion raped Nephele and she birthed the centaurs.   She is featured in several stories. I included a nod to her role in the story of Aries & the Golden Fleece. The ornamental pin on her skirt shows the ram. She is depicted with her pregnant belly here.
