EDITORS COMMENTS
This enchanting print, hailing from a 16th-century Italian edition of Ovid's Metamorphoses, showcases the creation of the world and the epic Battle of the Giants from Book I. The Latin poet Publius Ovidius Naso (43 BC-17 AD) penned these verses during the 1st century AD, weaving a captivating tapestry of ancient mythology. The image begins with the creation scene, where the chaos of the primordial world gives way to the birth of the cosmos. The heavens and earth are formed, and the divine beings take their places. The scene transitions to the Battle of the Giants, an epic confrontation between the gods and the monstrous offspring of Gaia and Uranus. In the foreground, Decaulion and Pyrrha, the children of Epimetheus and Pandora, are shown seeking refuge from the chaos. They are protected by Apollo, the sun god, who stands tall and fierce, brandishing a spear and a serpent. The serpent, a symbol of Apollo's power, is coiled around the pair, ready to strike at any moment. This exquisite engraving, produced in Venice in 1584, offers a glimpse into the rich mythological heritage of antiquity. The vibrant colors and intricate details bring the ancient tales to life, transporting us back to a time when gods and monsters roamed the earth. This masterpiece is now a cherished piece of art and a testament to the enduring allure of Ovid's Metamorphoses.
