Painting: Oil on Canvas.
Enough stories have been created about the gods manipulating mortals, women in particular. In this image, rather than being turned into a tree while escaping a god, Daphne faces herself, and her own power. Her transformation into the Laurel tree is one of empowerment, spiritual connection, and recognition of her own divinity.
Handpicked to show at The Other Art Fair presented by Saatchi Art in Melbourne
