We all love the sun and could not live without it. In ancient Greek mythology, the sun was represented by Helios, the sun god. He drove a chariot daily from east to west across the sky and sailed around the northerly stream of Ocean each night in a huge cup. He is depicted here in intricate golden sphere, which was created using a doily and the screen-printing process.
This composition was also inspired by the story of Danaë, an Argive princess also from Greek Mythology. She was locked in a tower by her father to prevent her from conceiving a son. The tower had no doors or windows and only a sky-light for light and air through which Danaë could see the sun. Here she looks up at the sun through the open sky-light.
