This is the mystical MacGuffin of my film. It's rumored to be a sword given to Sisyphus by the Greek Goddess Circe, but it really doesn't matter. Glowerston collects old relics and he wants this one. This illustration is a prop for the reshoot coming up on the 28th. Nemo (of Nautilus fame) discovered this sword in the wreck of a Dutch ship in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
This is the sword Mulvey and his stalwart manservant Grimmauld go looking for, and find, in act one. However, during the course of the adventure, it is damaged and leads to a parting of the ways between the inventor and his benefactor. I can not wait to make this next piece!
I almost named it insidiarum fabrica, which is "plot device" in Latin. As it stands, it means "Sisyphus' Despair."
It's a mystery, what can I say? I'm pretty happy with the image and when I printed it out, it's pretty much life size...
