Art Description

Painting: Acrylic on Canvas.

Marsyas was an expert player on the double-piped reed instrument known as the aulos. In a contest between Apollo and Marsyas, the terms stated that the winner could treat the defeated party any way he wanted. Since the contest was judged by the Muses, Marsyas naturally lost and was flayed alive in a cave near Celaenae for his hubris to challenge a god. His brothers, nymphs, gods and goddesses mourned his death, and their tears, according to Ovid’s Metamorphoses, were the source of the river Marsyas.
