EDITORS COMMENTS
In this photo print, we are transported back to ancient Greece as we witness the enchanting scene of Hera, Aphrodite, and Athena preparing themselves for the ultimate contest of beauty. This exquisite artwork is a reproduction from the 18th century, based on an original painting by Perino del Vaga. The three goddesses stand side by side in all their divine glory. Their ethereal presence is enhanced by the soft clouds that surround them, creating an otherworldly atmosphere. Each goddess exudes her unique charm - Hera radiates regal elegance, Aphrodite emanates irresistible allure, and Athena embodies wisdom and strength. As they prepare for the contest before Paris, their nakedness symbolizes purity and vulnerability while highlighting their timeless beauty. Adorned with delicate garlands of flowers around their heads and bodies, they embody nature's grace intertwined with divine power. This stunning etching captures not only the physical attributes but also the essence of these legendary figures from Greek mythology. The artist Philippe Simonneau skillfully brings out every intricate detail through his masterful technique. Displayed in museums worldwide including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in France, this remarkable piece serves as a testament to our fascination with ancient myths and legends that continue to captivate us even today.
