.: Calypso :. by KuramaPhoenix .: Calypso :. by KuramaPhoenix
Calypso was a sea nymph in Greek mythology and the daughter of the Titan god Atlas; her mother was probably Tethys.[1] She is remembered for her imprisonment of the fabled Greek hero Odysseus (also credited as Ulysses) on her island, Ogygia (believed to be the modern day Gozo), in Homer's Odyssey. She desired to make him her immortal husband. Athena asked Zeus to spare Odysseus of his torment on the island, as he wanted to go to his homeland and see his beloved wife. Zeus sent Hermes, the messenger of the gods, to tell Calypso to release Odysseus. As Zeus was the Lord of the gods, she was unable to refuse him, although she did not wish to let him go. Odysseus eventually returned to his homeland of Ithaca, to be with his beloved wife Penelope who had been waiting for him for twenty years.

According to Hesiod, Calypso bore Odysseus two children: Nausithous and Nausinous. The island of Gozo, part of the Maltese archipelago, has a long tradition that links it with the mythical figure of Calypso.

Nicely done, I like the incorporation of the scales and her hair, has the effect as if it is floating in water. Thank you for using our stock.
