Penelope & Telemachos Youth T-Shirt

Penelope & Telemachos Youth T-Shirt

Regular price $23.99
Found on 5th century BC red-figure skyphos, this scene depicts two of the main characters in Homer's Odyssey - Penelope and her son Telemachos. While not explicitly described in the work itself, its overall tone and setting fit within the context of Book 2. Penelope sits in a typical pose of grief with Telemachus facing her. Completing the scene behind them is the non-animate character of Penelope's loom, which she used to deceive her many suitors. Our design uses the background color of the shirt to create a true red-figure effect.

A lightweight youth tee, made of 100% cotton (except for heather colors, which contain polyester). Comes pre-shrunk so the fit stays the same over time and multiple wash cycles.

• 100% ring-spun cotton (heather colors have polyester)
• 30 singles
• Pre-shrunk
• Tubular construction
• Shoulder-to-shoulder tape
• Double-needle sleeve and bottom hem
