description

Summary

This is a scene from the Odyssey, the epic tale of the perilous journey home made by Odysseus and his companions after the fall of Troy. The men came to the island where the sorceress Circe lived. She gave them a magic potion that transformed them into pigs (a pig walks out at the left). Warned in the nick of time, Odysseus was able to break the spell.
