Detail of "Huntress (Helladic II)" by Troy's Work Table . Frost Park Chalk Off 7:9. Friday 30 May 2014.


It appears I had another Helladic octopus lurking within. This one is a manifestation of Artemis, hunter and deity of the moon


I tried to be somewhat more faithful to the colors that would have been used at the time. White for female figures and characters, blue for silver, yellow for gold.

It's hard to see in the pictures, but there is also read and green suckers on her tentacles—four on each praying limb, nine on each of the others.

Beautiful work, Troy. You should paint this as a fresco on some wall in your house. The whorls do evoke that period and the intercourse (if I may use that word) between mainland Greece and Crete.
