Head of Orpheus 2011

This is the latest in an ongoing series of depictions of Orpheus / mythological & classical characters. It also references Rilke (Sonnets to Orpheus) & symbolizes the poetic soul, I work tends to either not have much in the way of meanings (I work by instinct quite a bit), or is densely layered with allusions...or both.
