Description

In mythology, Helen of Troy was said to be the most beautiful woman in the world. The standard of beauty has long been based on a European definition of beauty. The artist's interpretation is a highly melanated beautiful woman who holds a mysterious presence and a look that would launch a thousand hearts.
