EDITORS COMMENTS
Principal Greek Gods on Mount Olympus: A Glimpse into Ancient Mythology This hand-colored copperplate engraving by Roberto Freschi, taken from Giulio Ferrario's "Costumes Ancient and Modern of the Peoples of the World," offers a breathtaking view of Mount Olympus, home to the principal Greek gods. The image is a testament to the richness and complexity of Greek mythology, which continues to fascinate and inspire us to this day. At the center of the composition, Jupiter (Zeus), the king of the gods, is depicted as a giant, seated figure with a regal expression and a scepter in his hand. His consort, Juno, is shown standing beside him, holding a peacock, a symbol of her wisdom and power. Hebe, the goddess of youth, is portrayed as a young woman, while Ganymede, the beautiful mortal who was abducted by Jupiter to be his cupbearer, is shown as a handsome, winged figure. The Graces, the Hours, and the Fates are also present, each representing different aspects of beauty, time, and fate. The Zodiac, Zephyr, Iris, and the Parcae are depicted in various poses, adding to the vibrant and dynamic scene. The statuesque figures of the gods are reminiscent of the sculptures that once adorned the temples and sanctuaries of ancient Greece. In particular, the image of Jupiter is said to be inspired by Phidias' famous statue of Zeus at Olympia, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. This engraving is a valuable historical and artistic document, providing us with a glimpse into the ancient Greek world and its rich mythological traditions. It is a reminder of the enduring power of mythology to captivate and inspire us, and of the importance of preserving our cultural heritage for future generations.
