Measuring 41cm in length and weighing at a hefty 13.5kg, this exquisite work of art brings to life the captivating tale of Europa and Zeus.

Based on one of the most captivating stories of Greek mythology, Zeus's love for Europa, this sculpture beautifully captures the moment of abduction. Europa was the beautiful daughter of Agenor, the Phoenician king, after whom the continent of Europe was named. Overcome with love for Europa, Zeus transformed himself into a snow-white bull with dainty pearl horns, or in another version, sent a bull to chase her, who later turned into the constellation Taurus as a token of his gratitude.

In the sculpture, Europa rides gracefully atop the majestic bull, ready to swim across the seas to reach Crete. It is here that Zeus shared her bed, and she bore him three sons. The storytelling detail in this sculpture reflects the deep subject matter and the artist’s mastery of the medium, capturing each character's emotion and bringing this important myth to life.
