The Enchantress

Edmund Dulac has portrayed Circe, the enchantress, several times — but none MORE enchanting than this seldom-seen version that was designed for a tapestry.

I like it a lot. Was the tapestry executed? If so, do we know what happened to it?

E.G., this tapestry was woven by Leo Belmonte, and apparently also a second time, in a much later execution. They are in private collections, but the whereabouts are presently unknown.

This is beautiful! I love how he's taken into accout the Minoan costumes to make this.
