This design is based around ancient Greek art, pottery, poetry and literature. The back of the blouse features an elegant protagonist, representing Argos, the faithful and tragic dog of Odysseus in the Homeric epic, The Odyssey. The dog reclines, draped in a swathed himation, wreaths of narcissi and a crown of beaten silver. Around his neck sits a terracotta collar, painted in the style of ancient Greek pottery vessels, and above the dog’s head appears a terracotta flourish. The blouse displays borders featuring patterns and designs inspired by the vase painters of ancient Greece. Odysseus’ garden of Ithaca is invoked by the floral details within the design; from bluebells and snowdrops to hellebore and giant Fennel, these faunae were all revered by the Greek gods. At the base of the design sit a set of terracotta rabbit vases, while the front, hem and cuff borders represent metal and alabaster plaques inspired by the Minoan Aegina Treasure.
