The Hermes of Kalos by Mercvtio The Hermes of Kalos by Mercvtio
"Many years ago, when the hillside villa was new and resplendent, there dwelt within it the two sculptors Kalos and Musides. From Lydia to Neapolis the beauty of their work was praised, and none dared say that the one excelled the other in skill. The Hermes of Kalos stood in a marble shrine in Corinth, and the Pallas of Musides surmounted a pillar in Athens, near the Parthenon. All men paid homage to Kalos and Musides, and marvelled that no shadow of artistic jealousy cooled the warmth of their brotherly friendship."

Lovecraft, The Tree

Pallas of Musides can be found here : mercvtio.deviantart.com/art/Th…

As is the case with almost all my Lovecraft-related works, this picture is to be included in a mobile app, called The Pnakotic Atlas, and released by Audacious Software (some of you might be familiar with their Comics app). I'm not the only artist working for it, and they are always looking for new contributors to illustrate the remaining locations. Don't hesitate to get in touch if you feel like getting involved !
More info can be found here : pnakoticatlas.com/
