Interesting. Is this about not really caring who the He is, as long as there is a He?!

The way I see it the He in this work didn't expect to witness what he has witnessed, so maybe he is not fit or doesn't want to be anyone.

Very astute observation :heart: I'm curious what drove that perspective

My imagination lead me to believe that he stepped out for a carton of milk because his wife told him that they are out. On his way back, out of nowhere a girl appears and plunges down on her knees in front of him. He'd be startled for sure, and at best will be trying to help her up on her feet! :)
On a serious note, I guess it's his clothes, especially the coat, and of course the posture. Again in my mind, I have completed what he looks like. By the way, I don't necessarily agree with Ronnie that he is a jerk. He simply doesn't fit. Incidentally, my recent image is somewhat similar and it was inspired by one of Monty's drawings.

It is the -in battle- part of the retreat/submission that I am unsure of.  Are you a willing combatant or not?  

(Ps. The panties around her ankles is kind of...hot)

You're so good at capturing body language. This is full of emotion and you don't even have to show her face. I don't like the guy either, I can tell he's a jerk, from less than half of him, and not even the most expressive half. Amazing work. Great title too.

I love it :heart:

interesting title too - I think I have read about Palioxis in a book by Marie Louise von Franz..  she certainly talked about these Greek "personifications" of moments or events.

Me too.  Von Franz talked about "Augenblicksgötter" which google translates as "momentary Gods" but it should be "Gods of a particular moment", such as Palioxis.  Fascinating idea.  Moments in time, or events, personified as a god or goddess.  I suppose "Atropa" is not far off, being the personification of the "Fate who cannot be turned", in other words, mortality.  There must be a lot about the Old Gods in "The Bicameral Mind".   Uh-oh.. now I am thinking about "The Old Ones" in the works of H.P. Lovecraft....

Yes I hadn't thought of that, but you're right - the patron saint of this, that and the other.  Just like the Greek gods, Fates and muses.  Assigning a supernatural identity to an event or a situation.  Saint Christopher is an interesting one - "Cristoforos" literally means "Christ carrier", so it's more of a job-description than a name.  It would be like calling Saint Francis "Saint Talks-To-Birds".. (perhaps he was the first person to use twitter :laughing:)
