the travel of the boy with pierced heels


click image to enlarge

this is one of my proposals for our silkscreen-project
"7 reasons not to travel".
it shows baby oidipus who was abandoned
in the caucasus mountains with pierced heels.
there it was, where he started his journey in which
he ended up killing his father, making his mother pregnant,
hole-punching his eyes and beeing hunted to death
by the erinyes, the godesses of vengeance.
if that isn't a pretty good reason not to travel, i don't know what is...

cheers,

cléo
