    Oh the sweetness of flowers in memory of caresses
    And the fiery lava flowing
    Slowly from your eyes
    Slowly into my veins
    A visage in the crowd
    Among so many others multiplied by our looks
    You who could have been another
    And who cancels green wood memories
    In my burned out autumn

    Fatéma Chahid, “Escape,” translated from the French by Hafsa Bekri-Lamrani, Prague Writers’ Festival (2014)

    Archaeological Museum of Lamia:

    A terracotta figurine of a little Eros riding on a dolphin, holding a lyre, from Achinos. (Hellenistic)

    There are countless depictions of a youthful Eros riding on a dolphin, from mosaics, to sculptures to little figurines, it was a beloved and constant Hellenistic motif.

    You can probably recognize this scene from many neoclassical paintings that depict romanticized scenes inspired by grecian antiquity. The development of grecian themes from the renaissance and on during neoclassicism coincided with a renewed interest in archaeology. And when I say archaeology I actually mean the shameless looting of greek (and other mediterranean) sites.
