At this time i was given the task to recreate the poetess Ex-Libris. Greek mythology is and was always present in the work of the poetess and the Pegasus was originally part of the original Ex-libris. So for that I've used the Pegasus and two ionic pillars.
The Pegasus is one of the most recognized creatures in Greek mythology and he is the offspring of the god Poseidon. The Pegasus represents attaining freedom with no boundaries of time and space.
I used the pillars because Greek mytology is part of the pillars of the poetess works, not just her children. I've used the ionic pillars simply because they are my favorite of the tree versions created throughout the history of ancient Greece.
Now I'll leave you with some of the illustrations i've created for the poems.
