Description

In the Greek Mythology, Hypnos is the son of Nyx ("The Night") and Erebus ("The Darkness"). His brother is Thanatos ("Death"), both siblings live in the underworld (Hades) or in Erebus, another valley of the Greek underworld. According to rumors, Hypnos lives in a big cave, which the river Lethe ("Forgetfulness") comes from and where night and day meet. His bed is made of ebony, on the entrance of the cave grow a number of poppies and other hypnotic plants. No light and no sound would ever enter his grotto.

According to Homer, he lives on the island Lemnos, which later on has been claimed to be his very own dream-island. His children Morpheus ("Shape"), Phobetor ("Fear") and Phantasos ("Imagination, Phantasy") are the gods of the dream. It is claimed that he has many more children, which are also Oneiroi. He is said to be a calm and gentle god, as he helps humans in need and, due to their sleep, owns half of their lives.

This painting is based on a personal dream I had with Oneiros.

Her pictures of this box do not do it justice. Mine are worse. I have tried to find someone for years to make a painting for me or a statue...of Hera alone.Near totally impossible. Even now I am looking for someone to do a tattoo for me, and it is the same roadblock. Then I saw a pentacle of Venus spirit box on Etsy...and the rest became history.
Someone described this picture as sensual. It is also royal. The side of Mercury donning the front side is warm and inviting, a contrast to the back that is dignified and friendly.

I have enjoyed this process and am myself tempted to get two or three small paintings.....because they are unique and custom and affordable. Anyone that needs a votive offering....an offering as payment of a vow made...she is one contact in my book. Her work speaks for itself.

When I first saw this piece, I was on fence about ordering it. Then when I decided to order the piece had been sold. I was really disappointed and I contacted Mani. To my surprise she said no problem I can make one for you and customize it if you'd like. WHAT?! I was really surprised and delighted. Mani was in constant communication with me throughout the entire process. When my piece arrived and I opened the box it was nothing but a sheer piece of beauty and gorgeousness! Thank you Mani!!! She's exquisite!
