This linoprint with watercolour which I produced was inspired by a poem by Cavafy called;-
"The Souls of Old Men"
In their bodies wasted and aged
sit the souls of old men.
How grievous are the poor things
and how bored with the miserable life they endure.
How they tremble lest they lose it and how they dote on it
the confounded and contradictory
souls, that sit- comicotragical-
in their aged worn-out hides.
