Helen and Cassandra

Figure descriptions
Two women in classical dress stand together. They are identified in the poem caption as Helen and Cassandra. The woman on the right scowls at the woman on the left and points toward the background. She leans forward toward the woman on the left. The woman on the left recoils, frowns, and leans away from the woman on the right. She also hunches over and bites on a strand of her own hair. There are large flames in the background. The top of a burning building is visible in the top-left corner. Pottery sits on the ground by the women’s feet.
