Ganymede Picture

This small (8") sculpture is my take on the story of Zues and Ganymede. According to the legend Zues looked down from Mnt.Olympus and fell in love with the handsome greek man.He then transformed himself into an eagle and brought ganymede up to Olympus to be his "cup barrier". While other depictions I have seen over the years depicted a violent kidnapping, my take is that the all powerful Zues would be seductive ev en in eagle form.
