Introducing ‘Helen’

From the ashes of H rises the beauty of Helen, a paper collage based on Sappho’s words on Helen of Troy.

“A troop of horse, the serried ranks of marchers,
A noble fleet, some think these of all on earth
Most beautiful. For me naught else regarding
Is my beloved.

To understand this is for all most simple,
For thus gazing much on mortal perfectino
And knowing already what life could give her,
Him chose fair Helen,”

Sappho ‘Helen’ : Lobel-Page 16 / Diehl 27a 27b / Cox 3 / Voigt 16
