This picture represent a modern view of the myth of Narcissus & Echo from the Metamorphoses of Ovid.
( I can’t write you a fast resume cause the story is so much interesting that I 'll miss all important parts, you can go on "Wikipedia source" to know more about and read the text ).
So, I made a modern view of it, adapting some points and working more on describing the psychology of characters :
- Narcissus is here a traveler, he observe with passion his reflect on the metro's glass. A beautiful boy ,mysterious.
- Echo is one of those thousand girls with magazine/headphones from everyday that is suddenly interested by him, but didn’t know how to approach him.
So, 2 world in confrontation, this kind of situation is may be not as dramatic as the original myth but I just wanted to put the same perfume in it and keep the relation.
Myth are still alive for me, and are played every days.
This picture was realised for 3D station contest “greek mythology” , and receive the first prize award.
Thanks to them.
