Apollo, light and laurel Picture

Apollo, Greek God of light and the sun; prophecy, music, medicine and a hundred other things. In his right hand he holds a laurel wreath, and behind him burns the incense his oracles would inhale to see the future.
As bright and beautiful as he was, legends also tell of some of the women he pursued who went to extraordinary lengths to escape him; even turning themselves into trees or flowers to do so. It would seem the god of light had also had a dark side.
