"Leda - The Dream? / Leda - O Sonho?"

Colored pencils on rough paper
Lápis de cor sobre papel rugoso

30 x 40 cm - 2010

"Leda was admired by Zeus, who seduced her in the guise of a swan.
As a swan, Zeus fell into her arms for protection from a pursuing eagle.
Their consummation, on the same night as Leda lay with her husband Tyndareus,
resulted in two eggs from which hatched Helen, Clytemnestra, and Castor and Pollux. "
