The Odyssea II

Marc Chagall
FRAMED Dimensions:
37" x 31"
In pencil

In this lithograph, Odyssey II- The Omen, the Goshawk, and the Dove, Chagall recreates the moment in the novel when Telemachus finally reaches the shore of Ithaca. He is talking to Theoclymenus when a hawk, known to be the bird of the god Apollo, flies by holding a dove in its talons. Theoclymenus pulls Telemachus away and says, "Telemachus, it was by a god's will that this bird flew past on your right. Directly I set eyes on it, I knew it for a bird of omen." Theoclymenus interprets this to be a good omen for Odysseus and his descendants. He believes it signifies that Telemachus' family shall hold sovereign power over Ithaka forever.
