Mettez le son !

During his journeys, Ulysses arrived on the Island of Circé, the magician daughter of the sun, holder of the power to transform the men into animals.

She transformed into swine the companions of Ulysses, by making them drinking a magic philter, but Ulysses who was warned did not drink. Then, a love story rose between Circé and Ulysses and she restored his companions into human shape.

 

By showing Circé pouring the magic liquid, I wanted to make an analogy with the current world. Indeed, the power was reversed: here, the woman is in phallic position, it is her who sows and who transforms, while in the traditional societies, it is the man who gives the seed and the woman who is the receptacle.
