The Treasure of the Sun

The Treasure of the Sun

Inspired by the fairy story ‘The Prince Childe’ within the book Persuasion by A S Byatt, The Sun warrior is a dazzling and beautiful woman arrayed in gold.

I was inspired by the imagery in the writing of this story and the undercurrent of female power and possession throughout the novel. The overlay of the Pre-Raphaelite period was also a reference given their work in representing allegory and legend.
