La Danaide Picture
This image is inspired by the work of Auguste Rodin. In particular, his sculpture of the same name. The story of La Danaide is based on a story in Greek Mythology. Danaide and her forty-nine sisters were married to the fifty sons of AEgyptus. At the command of their father Danaus the fifty daughters murdered their husbands on the first night of their marriage. As punishment for this horrendous crime they were compelled in The Realm of the Dead (Hades) to fill a container with water but the leaking jug could never be filled.
