*** New Work ***

I finished up this little piece that I am planning on incorporating into a larger piece.  This piece is very unique because i have sewn fabric onto the canvas. This piece features Artmesia who was not only the leader of her country after her husband's death, but also a naval commander in the battle of Salamis in 480 BC.  She avoided getting her ship destroyed by ramming another ship in the Persian fleet confusing the Greeks into thinking her ship was one of her own.  This led Xerxes to exclaim that his men had become women and his women had become men.
