Semele by lisa-im-laerm Semele by lisa-im-laerm
Ink on paper, A4

Wikipedia about Semele: [link]

"Zeus' wife, Hera, a goddess jealous of usurpers, discovered his affair with Semele when she later became pregnant. Appearing as an old crone, Hera befriended Semele, who confided in her that her lover was actually Zeus. Hera pretended not to believe her, and planted seeds of doubt in Semele's mind. Curious, Semele asked Zeus to grant her a boon. Zeus, eager to please his beloved, promised on the River Styx to grant her anything she wanted. She then demanded that Zeus reveal himself in all his glory as proof of his godhood. Though Zeus begged her not to ask this, she persisted and he was forced by his oath to comply. Zeus tried to spare her by showing her the smallest of his bolts and the sparsest thunderstorm clouds he could find. Mortals, however, cannot look upon Zeus without incinerating, and she perished, consumed in lightning-ignited flame."

In the right hand she holds the Sistrum and the holy water in the flagon, with the snake, is in the left hand. Maybe I should call it Serapis, don't know :O_o:

its very inviting but also incredibly sinister. warm but hollow in its lovelessness. not hateful just depressed, void of emotion.

hmm :hmm: you see a lot :) void of emotion, sure! And lovelessness, too. But absolutly no depression and of course no hate... In this one I simply trained my facial expession. And gods don't need love ;)

Depression is an inevitable part of lovelessness, even for gods. Though they have the power to rationalize themselves into functionality and even power, the emptyness is still there, and it will certainly be their end no matter how hard they struggle.
A god without love is not a god at all, a demon perhaps but not even a demi-god. Study your mythology harder. The greek gods are allegories for man's triumph over nature aka the Titans and how through them great societies are born(implying they love their worshipers and require their tribute and love.) These societies dont flourish without an abundance of love... and would you look at that, the apocalypse is right over the horizon..
Like the bible theres a lot more to the story than the spectacular events they depict.

I only know that even in ancient times, there were discussions about, if gods could love and hate. I prefer those philosophers, who say no, that it is only human weakness and a kind of blasphemy, when you transfer it to the higher beings...
I knew and still know people who have depressions, so I have an idea what this could be:) I would say, it is being sad, without a problem. But I am not a psychologist, probably they have an other definition. Gods with problems is also human!

bible? Didn't the bible said, that the apocalypse, is very near and some of the followers will even experience it, they obviously didn't?!?
