House for Pénelope

Michal Lada


The main inspiration for this work was the ancient Greek myth of Odysseus, which tells of the ten-year journey of King Odysseus from the Trojan War. However, his wife Pénelope is waiting alone at home and must be wary of unwelcome suitors. Her hiding place is a house, located on the coast in a steep cliff and providing peace and security. The house reflects the feelings and emotions of Queen Pénelope, where the main theme is fidelity and hope.
