Arts Everyday Living: The Art of Deception—A Woman, A Knight, & A Mythological Tale

John William Waterhouse, Lamia, 1905, oil on canvas, Auckland Art Gallery, Toi o Tamaki, Auckland, New Zealand

I’m continuing my vacation.

British artist John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) depicts Lamia, a Graeco-Roman mythological character who is not as innocent as she appears.  Do you notice any clues to her true nature?
