"mythology" - Beauty in art form

Works of art created to represent Greek gods and goddesses. The visual hints included in the artwork to represent the stories behind them, the textures, and movement is all aspects that relate my chosen pieces.

This sculpture is a representation of my element, mythology. Venus is the goddess of love, her fair smooth skin in contrast with them rough tree trunk give a great verity of texture to the piece.
This sculpture is of Orpheus playing his music for the Gods of the underworld. The harsh colors, textures, and angles help the viewer feel his anguish as he plays to win his lover back.
Saturn, the father of Zeus, devouring his son with a bone from another in his hand. The Texture in his hair and wings really add a since of realism to this sculpture.
Another beautiful sculpture, again the harsh color and texture adds to the suspense. Pluto is abducting proserpine, his future wife. The third person is one of her slaves trying to pull her back home.
As Andromeda loses her last hope of survival Perseus shoots his arrow at the monster determined to eat her. This painting arrangement allows for a lot of movement you really "see" the whole thing.
Apollo kills his pregnant wife because she was unfaithful. He then tries to save her by collecting healing herbs, but judging by the dark contrast and gloomy feel of the painting it's too late.
Leda the queen of Sparta hides a swan, who is really Zeus, because she was cheating. The position of the swan and cloth act as a center point for the statute as to not take away from Leda's beauty.
Asklepios, the god of science and medicine. The color is very unique. Because of the shades and texture, the sculpture is given more of a dignified feel. It seems strong and unbreakable.
The smooth innocent feel of Ganymede's skin as he feeds the eagle, who in contrast is very rough and realistic, are very fitting. The eagle is said to be Zeus searching for a new wine tester.
Boreas abducting Orithyia is another wonderful work of art made to represent an element. Boreas's wings and the air he holds in his mouth represent wind. Visual elements aid the viewer in seeing this.
