Sisyphus

by Cyndy Cmyth

[Sisyphus, the King of Corinth, was condemned by Zeus to roll a boulder up a hill, only for it to roll down each time he almost reaches the top, so the effort has to be repeated every day.

Here, Cmyth shows Sisyphus, at the very bottom of the painting, contemplating his task at the base of the hill, while the sun makes its never ending daily journey from sunrise to sunset and back to sunrise again.]
