Artwork Description

Acording to greek mythology, dreams are controlled by three brothers. Morpheus, who controls images in human form and is the most skilled, Phobetor, who controls dream images of animals, and Phantasos, who controls images of inanimate objects. Together, the three sons of Sleep rule the realm of dreams.

This has such a distroted, dreamlike feeling to it. . . what an excellent use of composition to evoke a mood! I especially love all the details in his cloak.
