Calypso



Here, the Greek goddess Calypso, described in Homer's Odyssey 2,800 years ago, sits on her coral throne, awaiting the return of her lover, Odysseus. Calypso, who lived on Ogygia, an island near Malta, was unmarried, independent, and history's first documented feminist. See more detail at: Walter O. Neal@Fine Arts America
