Leda & the Swan

Leda was the mother of Helen of Troy, the daughter of Thestius and the wife of Tyndareus. She has been known as the Queen of Sparta. Leda was seduced by Zeus when he came to her in the form of a swan.

Leda gave birth to an egg. From it hatched the Dioscuri , the twins Castor and Pollux. With Zeus she also had Helen of Troy, who was the most beautiful woman in Greece and the major cause of the Trojan War, and with Tyndareus she had Clytemnestra, who later became the wife of Agamemnon, king of Mycenae.

This beautiful statue is made of fine white alabaster stone.
