"Dido", a commissioned illustration of the legendary founder and queen of Carthage. I enjoyed researching artifacts and styles from Phoenician culture - lots of Greek, Syrian, Egyptian and other influences.
Also note the reference to the Trojan war in the wall paintings!

@kristinagehrmann I am always ready to be stunned when I see good visualization of Trojan war -Aeneid period…! Despite its rich drama the costume and interior design always eludes me.


@morilee Thanks so much! :) The designs here involved a lot of guesswork too, referencing from objects and art of different Bronze Age Mediterranean cultures.
