|Carcinus, pen, watercolor & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 7 x 10", 2011.|
Carcinus is a very minor character in Greek mythology, and a large part of the zodiac. He pestered Hercules while he was busy fighting Hydra, and ended up getting stomped on. Hera appreciated the crab's effort, and put him up in the sky as the constellation, Cancer.
