!Short caption: He was originally called Hepius but received his popular name of Asclepius after he cured Ascles, ruler of Epidaurus who suffered an incurable ailment in his eyes.
Asclepius became so proficient as a healer that he surpassed both Chiron and his father, Apollo.
He was therefore able to evade death and to bring others back to life from the brink of death and beyond. This caused an influx of human beings and Zeus resorted to killing him to maintain balance in the numbers of the human population.
-A layered composition of shades and different types of mediums with accents of texture and bold color for a constant chromatic balance.
