Zeus Releases Ganymede


1 in stock



In the original myth, Zeus took the form of an eagle to kidnap Ganymede, and carried him off to Olympus to serve as his cup-bearer. The only unusual aspect of the myth is that Zeus’ victim was a boy rather than a girl. In my version, Zeus experiences pangs of conscience and releases his victim before anything untoward takes place.

This piece is bisque fired, but not glazed.

Approximately 30cm high, and 25cm in diameter.
