Study - Beheading of St. John


"In  Greek mythology, Argus Panoptes (Ἄργος Πανόπτης) or Argos, guardian of  the heifer-nymph Io and son of Arestor, was a primordial giant whose  epithet "Panoptes", "all-seeing", led to his being described with  multiple, often one hundred, eyes. In the 5th century and later,  Argus’ wakeful alertness was explained for an increasingly literal  culture as his having so many eyes that only a few of the eyes would sleep at a time: there were always eyes still awake.” - Wikipedia Instead of dots I used three pairs of eyes to create  each braille character. The open eyes took the place of the dots and the  closed eyes fill the usually empty space in the Braille cell. The  Braille text reads ‘Argus’ with his epithet ‘Panoptes’ in Greek letters  right under the Braille Text.
