The River Styx

Charcoal and pastel on paper
11 x 11 inches

The Styx is a river in Greek mythology that formed the boundary between Earth and the Underworld. The ferryman Charon is believed to have transported the souls of the newly dead across this river into the underworld. In ancient times some believed that placing a coin in the mouth of the deceased would help pay the toll for the ferry to cross the river which would lead to the entrance of the underworld.
