Myths and Legends: Thetis Consoling Achilles

Thetis Consoling Achilles. To find out more about Thetis, see this Wikipedia article: link; for information about the image: image source.

The sea nymph Thetis was the mother of the Greek hero Achilles; his father was King Peleus of the Myrmidons. I like the way that Achilles is poised in a space in-between the sea where his mother dwells and the human space that we inhabit!
