Of Gods and Goddesses: Deities of Ancient Rome
As a young child I remember reading books about mythology from all over the world and feeling a very strong connection to each of the mythical beings, even though I never recognized myself in the illustrations for the texts I read. In Of Gods and Goddesses: Deities of Ancient Rome, master Italian painter Elena Tommasi Ferroni and I reimagined sixteen ancient Roman deities to reflect the multicultural society of today. Each illustration was painted in oil on 20 x 30 cm paper, and the original works of art as well as prints are available for purchase at www.theenglishschoolhouse.com.
Written by Dr. Tamara Pizzoli, illustrated by Elena Tommasi Ferroni.
