Isle of the Blessed by Rachopin77 Isle of the Blessed by Rachopin77
My take on something from Greek Mythology.

The Isle of the Blessed, also known as the Elysian Fields or Elysium, is a place in the underworld where those judged worthy and virtuous and favored by Zeus would travel after death.

The man is a hero who died in battle.

It's a lovely piece of art. However, the Isle of the Blessed and the Elysian Fields are different. Your definition of the Elysian Fields is pretty spot-on (although any favored by the gods can earn a spot), but the Isle of the Blessed is actually a place inside the Elysian Fields. In the EF, souls can choose to be reborn. When souls make it into the EF three times (being reborn twice and ~still~ making it to the EF upon death), the souls live on the Isle of the Blessed, which is even more awesome than the EF.
