Artwork Description: This art piece is a portrait of the famous Greek king Midas. In the Greek myth, Midas asked the gods to be given the gift of the ‘golden touch’, literally. Unfortunately for the greedy king, he did not see his desires through and ended up turning everything he touched to cold solid gold, even his loved ones. On another occasion, after defying the gods, Midas’s ears were turned to those of a donkey. Unfortunately, due to his actions, this Greek mythology character suffered tough predicaments. A quick look around us will certainly reveal to us plenty of Midases, whose greed and arrogance dictates their behaviour.
