In ancient Greek mythology Tethys was a Titaness, the mother of river gods and wife of Oceanus. She was often depicted in baths and pools. The Titans were all banished to Tartarus, the place of torture in the underworld, by their father Uranus. He felt threatened by their size and power.
This stub of an old tree in Epping Forest caught Hjorth-Johansen’s eye because it looked like an elegant and beautiful sculpture. She lit it with blue and golden yellow, giving it a glow of vitality and youth despite its old age.
