The Lament of Niobe Picture

This is one of my favorite pieces so far this year, yet another member of my Greek mythology series. Niobe bragged that having fourteen children made her a better mother than Leto. Leto's children, which just happened to be Artemis and Apollo, got revenge by killing all of Niobe's children (whoops). Niobe was so upset that she went to the top of a mountain and cried until she turned to stone.

This won Best of Show at my high school art show.
