Diomedes is Inspired but is Wounded
Painting by Koen Satyawan based on a sketch by Frederick John Kluth
“Diomedes is Inspired but is Wounded” is painting nine out of twelve in the “Pandarus Broke the Truce – A Tale from the Iliad of Homer” series by Koen Satyawan based on a sketch by Frederick John Kluth. Diomedes is inspired but wounded. Athena gave audacity away. To Diomedes she offered resolve. His experience at Thebes gave power. Before him resistance would dissolve. Pandarus saw him coming in a rage. He bent his bow and shot a bitter dart. The arrow struck his cuirass and shoulder,But brave Diomedes did not depart.
