$45.00 AUD

 

Art Nouveau illustration (1897) of Hero, a priestess of Aphrodite, from the Greek myth of Hero and Leander. 
Leander, who fell in love with Hero, would swim across the Hellespont every night to be with her.

But far above the loveliest, Hero shin'd,
And stole away th' enchanted gazer's mind;
For like sea-nymphs' inveigling harmony,
So was her beauty to the standers-by..

from the poem 'Hero and Leander' by Christopher Marlowe
