Additional Information

From my series of history’s most torrid love affairs depicted in fairy wrens pairs.

Here the story of how, during her husband’s long absence after the Trojan War, many chieftains of Ithaca and nearby islands become her suitors. To spare herself their importunities she insists that they wait until she has woven a shroud for Laertes, father of Odysseus. Every night for three years, until one of her maids reveals the secret, she unravels the piece that she has woven by day so that she will not have to give up hope for the return of her beloved husband and remarry. When after 20 years Odysseus does return, she makes him prove his identity and finally accepts him. Sealed with gloss varnish.
