The chained maiden

titled 'The chained maiden' (Andromeda) is one of the 48 constellations listed by the greek astronomer Ptolemy in the 2nd century. Representing the daughter of the king and queen of Ethiopia who was chained to a rock as a sacrifice to the sea monster Cetus. For me this drawing reflects the current feeling of isolation, of feeling stuck and unable to move (lockdown) while the monster (Covid) sweeps across the globe.
