A girl form Sappho's thaissos on the isle of Lesbos singing
This is my painting of a girl from Sappho's thaissos on the isle of Lesbos, wearing a soft white dress and flowers in her hair, singing next to the Aegean sea, the way I imagine her. Young girls in Sappho's school were singinf, dancing, writing poems, beiing helped to develop their feminine and artistic sides. These girls were priestesses of Aphrodite and they were singing about love, beauty and the feminine in it's essence.
