Promotional design for a modern adaptation of the drama, Antigone by Sophocles. The upper half of the poster represents the prophet Tiresias who warns Creon to not disrespect the gods. Although blind, his eyes aren't clouded or covered so as to symbolize his gift of foresight. The lower half represents Antigone, daughter of Oedipus who is sentenced to death for giving her fallen brother a proper burial. Her mouth is shown to represent her brave protests against King Creon.
