The transition in his arms from human to plant is really well done.

That must be Echo standing near! Very awesome, I love the transition of him to flowers.

is that Echo? I thought it was either her or Aphrodite, cursing him.

Hm...you may be right. In the myth though, Narcissus says "farewell" to his reflection as he is dying, and that's the only thing Echo can say back to him. Of course, it might just as well be Aphrodite there to witness his death for scorning her...Ahh I love Greek Mythology!

that makes two of us! It's so fasinating and unique, the way that the greeks explained how the world worked through these stories and through their gods and goddesses...it's fasinating!

Ahh, wonderful representation :) Reminds me of Blue Balliet's art. Who's that lady in the background, again? Oh, some nymph, right? Hmm...what's her name?
