    Artist Statement: 

    "Leda and the swan is a greek myth about Zeus turning himself into a swan to seduce and impregnate a young woman/girl. It is a tale that has been depicted many times throughout art history by artists such as Michelangelo, Correggio, Cézanne and Leonardo Da Vinci.

    While having been a favourite subject for many artists over the years, all these beautiful works of art have something in common. It seems that everyone has decided to agree that this was consensual and that being caressed by an aroused swan (who is really an old man) feels great. The possibility that this so-called seduction wasn’t romantic, for Leda at least, has simply not been explored. So that is my intention. To portray the other side of this story."  - Esther Sarto
