Medea plays a main role in the myth of Jason and the Argonauts ('Argonautica' by Apollonios of Rhodes). She is a sorceress and priestess of the goddess Hecate. She is known as a jealous and ruthless person. Personally I prefer the Christa Wolf retelling ('Medea. Voices') in which Medea is a fiercely independent woman and a victim of a patriarchal political structure and xenophobia.

Tatiana Ferkova and victim of her own ( literally killing) passion, your Medea has this typical " insanely loving" sight...I like her

Roberto De Mitri Medea's eyes are the full expression of disbelief and terror. perhaps she has realized what destiny her hands are going to accomplish and remains herself petrified by this terrible fate?

Paulo Abrantes the face expression is very disturbing and proking some mixed feelings. maybe the sadness wins on this one but amazing as always

Jos Letschert Regina Susanna, danke sehr für deine schöne Komplimenten und auch das du die Zusammenarbeit mit Beate würdigt. Das schätze ich sehr. Es ist nicht einfach diese 'schwierige Typen' fest zu legen.

Jos Letschert Tatiana, thanks for your reading. Yes, in the classical version of Medea she is a 'killer-woman'. That is why I appreciate the 'Wolf-interpretation' so much in which becomes clear how much she has been a victim of her time.

Jos Letschert Gilbert, dank je hartelijk. Altijd weer mooi jouw waardering te krijgen.

Jos Letschert Roberto, yes indeed. In the classical version you are right. The passionated woman is victim of het fate. Personnaly I am very convinced of the contemporary retelling or interpretation by the German author Christa Wolf who turns the whole story into a quite different perspective. Medea isn't any longer that fatla woman. She is a victim of a patriarchale political structure in which she is condamned. In het new situation she also becomes a victim of xenofobia. It brings the Medea-myth very close to our times.

Jos Letschert Paulo, mixed feeling, indeed, you have observed exactly what I have tried to express. Thank you for that.

Jos Letschert Gérard, thank you very much for your feedback. The looks are the most difficult part indeed. Glad you like it!

Jos Letschert Hélène, thanks for your interesting feedback. I agree, Medea is rather 'touchante', for me too.

Jos Letschert Simone, thanks a lot for that big compliment. Highly appreciated!

Jos Letschert Joseph and Roland, thank you very much for your feedback and appreciation. Yes Joseph 'tristesse', because of knowing too much. Roland, the expression is the time consumer by sculpting. Thanks friends.

Jørgen Feldstedt Wonderful serious expression, beautiful colors - love the eyes! Well done work, Jos!

Joelle Chmiel What an expressive work... I personally agree with Paolo. Within all the multiple disturbing feelings expressed by her face and through her eyes (with once again an amazing deep, dark and at the same time bright shining blue) I guess that for me sadness in the end ist the most preeminent emotion. Maybe as the inevitable result or remain of the conglomerated feelings and past emotions...
