Leander

$45.00 AUD

 

Art Nouveau illustration of Leander, from the Greek myth of Hero and Leander. 
Leander falls in love with Hero, a priestess of Aphrodite (Venus), and swims across the Hellespont every night to be with her.

That my slack Muse sings of Leander's eyes;
Those orient cheeks and lips, exceeding his
That leapt into the water for a kiss
Of his own shadow, and, despising many,
Died ere he could enjoy the love of any...

from the poem 'Hero and Leander' by Christopher Marlowe
