Sacrifice   Tower   Rescue
    Aeschylus meets Tamerlane who built towers of his victims' heads. Here he is visibly aroused by his collection of trophies.   Artemis rescues Iphigenia from the flames and replaces her with a fawn which has morphed here into a black dog, already clad in sacrificial red.
