A New Image of Antinous

A stunning picture, elegant and sensuous. I snatched this off the Internet a couple of years ago, I don’t remember where it came from. Who is Stefan the artist? I would like to see more of his work. And what is the Elixir of Antinous?

  1. Very interesting! It doesn’t actually look much like him, and Antinous has no real connection to tigers…and, I’m wondering what’s up with the huge earring…but no matter what, it’s an intriguing image, for a variety of reasons! 😉

    • This is a modern piece, but rather Art Deco or Art Nouveau in feeling. True, it doesn’t really look very much like Antinous – maybe this is one of his followers? Whatever, this picture just reaches out to me.
