I never turned anyone into a pig.
Some people are pigs; I make them
Look like pigs.
Louise Gluck, Circe's Power
Circe Invidiosa is the second in a series of paintings that center around the mythic sorceress, Circe:
In Ovid's Metamorphosis Glaucus, Greek mortal turned Sea-God, fell in love with the naiad, Scylla. Repulsed by his fisy tail, she rejected him and fled. Glaucus asked Circe for a potion to make Scylla fall in love with him, but Circe fell in love with him instead. Glaucus held fast to his love for Sylla, so Circe poisoned the waters where Scylla bathed. Scylla stepped into the water and was transformed into a into a monster with four heads, twelve tentacles and six heads. Scylla threw herself into the sea and was changed into the hazardous rock that bears her name in the Mediterranean Sea.
