Odyssey VI 48" x 40"

Odyssey VI is the latest piece of the "Odyssey series". The title means "journey"and is used also as a metaphor for relationships within these conversation pieces.

The scene is St.Marks square looking to the Riva degli Schiavoni , which means the dock of slaves. In fact each of the six pieces take place in Italy.
