26-Europe Picture

In Greek mythology, Zeus fell in love with a woman named Europe. So he would not be seen by Hera, he turned himself into a white bull (the Taurus) and hid. She eventually sat on him and that's when he took off and abducted her! Her brought her to the continent that is now Europe... and that's why it's called that!

So here we have Europe, who has made a tress of flowers, approaching Zeus as the white bull. The sea next to them is the one they crossed.

All the background is made from scanned scrap-booking paper.
