Lost and Found

The story of the hunter, Narcissus, has inspired many artists to describe the very character through their pen or canvas.  The likes of Caravaggio* and others have depicted Narcissus to be male keeping true to the original Greek myth.  This has no doubt lead many tales and stories to associate the narcissistic character with the male sex.  More modern story tellers describe the trait of Narcissus to be equally feminine.  To date,  the female representation of this trait has only been discussed by modern visionaries known as bloggers.

Just last week, in a small hotel in Paris*, the lost artwork of the female Narcissus was found.  The artist or artists remains unknown.  This believer of the narcissism trait as equally male and female was able to capture a photo.

*The Caravaggio painting of Narcissus (male) is found at the Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Antica in Rome, Italy.

**The artwork was found in my hotel room while staying in Paris.

    • Such a coincidence! We stay in the same hotel when we go through and there has been other artwork in the rooms – this time it was this one – so weird.

  2. I think there are a lot of layers of complexity. The Female role was pictured as the giver of life the hunter takes life. It is disconcerting that the person in your life that should give life instead takes it.
