Abanthis and Gongyla

Posted on

These are my drawings of Abanthis playing lyre for Gongyla, the girl she was in love with. A poem written by Sappho has inspired me to draw this.

This is the poem

Please Abanthis your Sappho calls you:
Won’t you take your Lydian lyre and play
Another song to Gongyla while desire still
flutters your heart-strings

for that girl, that beautiful girl: her dresses
clinging makes you shake when you see it, and i’m
happy for the goddess herself once blamed me
Our Lady of Cyprus

About Korinna

I am an artist and a verry sensitive person. I use to draw and paint since I was almost 14. I use to draw and paint all the things I dream of but I can never reach. For me art is the most beautiful way to express my deepest feelings and toughts. By my art I create my own world, the only place where I can be myself.There are many other things to say but I thing my art can describe me better than words

    Your work is splendid. I love your drawings. They remind me of the dreams I have too. For my girl, who will eventually show up
