Mythological Monster Carvings
Martin Tomsky Pictures the Loneliness of Charon the Ferryman


By: Gil Haddi (Superstar) Mar 19, 13
{SummaryTitle}

In Greek mythology, Charon the Ferryman of Hades transports the dead from one side of the river to the other, the reason why, in ancient tradition, it was custom to bury the dead with coins on their eyes as payment to Charon.

Generally a side character of most mythological tales, this creature is given central focus in the work of artist Martin Tomsky, depicting an interesting view of what the life of the dreaded Ferryman must be like. Each carving can be taken alone as an interesting peek at the life of this being, or they can be taken together as a sad narrative of a solitary life.

Martin Tomsky expands on classic mythology with his depictions of Charon the Ferryman.
