detail showing Apollo
I have been working on a book of this painting, so will be posting details and snippets of text.
Apollon was a god, son of Zeus and Leto and brother of Artemis. He is associated with music, poetic inspiration, archery, prophecy, medicine, pastoral life, and the sun.
Sol is the Roman name for Helios, the Greek personification of the sun. Sol was one of the most important of the Roman gods. Helios and Apollon later merged as one god.
Phoebus is an epithet of Apollo, used in contexts where the god was identified with the sun. "Helios was one of the Titans in Greek mythology, son of Hyperion and Theia. He was the personification of the Sun and his sisters were the goddesses Selene (the Moon) and Eos (the Dawn). He drove the chariot of the sun across the sky every day, pulled by horses named Pyrois, Aeos, Aethon and Phlegon. In later times, Helios was considered to be the same being as the god of light, Apollo, although sometimes they would still be thought of as distinct deities; after all, Helios was a Titan, while Apollo was an Olympian. Helios was eventually replaced by Apollo, who was depicted as a beautiful youth crowned with the aura of the sun". #miriamescofet#oilpainting#heavens#mythology#atlas#celestial#constellation#stilllife#gods#apollo#mercury#venus#mars#terra#moon#luna#jupiter#saturn#neptune#pluto
