Girolamo Francesco Maria Mazzola, aka Parmigianino [11 January 1503 – 24 August 1540] – Circe and the Companions of Ulysses, c. 1527.

In this episode from the Odyssey, Circe offers Odysseus’s men a magic potion that will turn them into beasts, yet leave them helplessly aware of their changed state.
