Artwork Detail Request a print

The lone figure of a messenger runs with haste through the hills of Murchison. The scene gives the viewer a sense of continuity between the battles, alluding to the communications between enemy camps, while also suggesting the length of the Trojan War, drawn out over ten years. (Southern Myths, 2005)
