A metope (but in paper) that might have decorated the exterior of Aphrodite's temple.
One of the nine Muses, Erato is the Muse of erotic poetry.
Erato is the spark that ignites new life.
These images took a full year of exclusive work to develop, carve and print. They started from a modest wish to somehow remember all of the Muses' names and areas of focus. They will soon be hand bound into a book. There is a narrative arc to the order in that they appear in this folder.
Each image is an edition of 5, then, sadly, the plates wear out.
