Usages of classical mythology are instances where narratives refer to familiar Greek and Roman myths through a sort of shorthand. Such usages, by my narrow definition, are not archetypal narratives but rather deliberate applications, where the modern artist overtly alludes to the classical narrative.

Calypso on a Nokia phone
The designers at Givori named a cell-phone case they designed after Calypso, "the Greek nymph of the sea." Whatever.
I guess the fish scales traced in gold and mother of pearl are the connection? We had a cat named Calypso when we were first married. She was a scratcher.
Thanks to bornrich.com for the photo and to my friend Shelby for keeping an eye out for such mythological allusions.
