Product Description
My Heliomorph series represents tableaus from the mythology of world culture represented in the visual language of Western super-robot culture. Daphne's story from: Daphne was a beautiful Nymph who loved to hunt. She was created by the Titaness Gaea (the Mother Earth in Ancient Greece) and the god of the Rivers, Peneus. Daphne was the first love of Greek god Apollo. When Apollo saw Daphne for the first time, he got struck by the arrows of Eros and madly fell in love with her. However, Daphne was rather indifferent to Apollo and tried to flee. But Apollo didn’t want to give up. So he set up in pursuit of Daphne, until finally he caught her and folded her in his arms. Full of despair, Daphne prayed to her mother Gaea for aid to make her disappear. Gaea followed her wish and, all at once, Daphne disappeared off the face of the earth. On the spot Daphne was seen for the last time, a fragrant plant, the sacred laurel tree, grew in Daphne’s honor. From then on, the laurel tree became the symbol of Apollo and he was often depicted with laurel leaves on his golden hair.
