Circe Invidiosa (1892). Artist: John William Waterhouse (1849-1917). Circe Invidiosa is a vintage Victorian Pre-Raphaelite fine art painting featuring a woman holding a vessel with water spilling out like a waterfall. In Greek mythology, Circe is a minor goddess of magic (nymph, witch, enchantress or sorceress) living on the island of Aeaea, famous for her part in the adventures of Odysseus in Homer's Odyssey.
By most accounts, Circe was the daughter of Helios (or Helius), the god of the sun, and Perse, an Oceanid and the sister of Aeetes, the keeper of the Golden Fleece and of Pasiphaë, the mother of the Minotaur. Other accounts make her the daughter of Hecate.
