Torsten Richter Eumaeus...den kannte ich gar nicht.
Was macht ein schweinehirte in der Mythologie?
Ich muss mich mal schlau machen,glaube ich.

Jos Letschert Torsten, es ist der erste Mann der Odysseus begegnete nach seinen Odyssee, derjenige auch der ihn gleich freundlich empfang und hilf die Freier in seinem Palast zu erledigen. Dieser Schweinehirt hat übrigens einen sehr edele Herkunft und ist aus dem Schicksal heraus in diesem Beruf geraten.

Barbara Corvino Intense eye.
12 May 2017 at 05:31pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Barbara, thanks. Yes, and with these eyes, and his very intellectual mind he was an perspicacious observator too, with a sagacious attitude. Eumaeus is a very intriguing person in the Odyssee.

Gérard Verbecelte A questioning face, enigmatic ... excellent work, Jos !

Bertrand Guichoux Amazing work as always.
12 May 2017 at 05:50pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Gérard, thanks, very much appreciated. Indeed, a questioning look, he is not easily to convince. They have told him too often that Odysseus, his master and his friend, should soon return.

12 May 2017 at 07:13pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Thanks Frédéric, yes, Eumaeus was one of a kind, we should give him anyway the honour of intensity.

Radek Kilinski avatar
Radek Kilinski Deep look - a philosophical physiognomy.
12 May 2017 at 09:07pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Radek, thanks a lot, E. is indeed more a philosopher as a swineherd, I think. Nice that you notice the deep look. It is what I've tried.

Piotr Czekalski Excellent !
13 May 2017 at 01:05am
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Marco, indeed, life has left traces on the face and in the soul. In that perception Eumaeus is a kind of metaphor.
13 May 2017 at 09:26am
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Henk, dank je wel voor je waardering en commentaar. Ik apprecieer jouw mening zeer!

Edna Dott avatar
Edna Dott His expression is captivating.. a mixture of beautiful innocence, faith and strength..I can't quite describe it. Powerful character, most admirable creation.
13 May 2017 at 08:24pm
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Edna, thanks a lot. Yes, innocence is a part of him. Good observation, I think you have really an eye for it: faith and strength, an reliable man. I appreciate your comment very much!

Toni Traglia avatar
Toni Traglia Beautiful work Jos, its is my prefered of this serie. Wonderful composition with great use of the empty elements. A very expressive portrait which breaks up to become an abstract work. And thes eyes are the only figurative part which show us all their worry.
14 May 2017 at 12:20am
Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Toni, thank you very much for your close observation and comments. It is nearly abstract indeed. If you could see it in its original form, you would even better see the different layers of paper, the structure of the collage. I am very pleased about your feedback.
