Lamia (version 1) 1905


The artist John William Waterhouse painted several paintings of the mythological figure. The work is one of his most popular. The piece depicts Lamia's transformation into a beautiful maiden who seduces her male prey. The replica canvas captures the texture and depth of color of the original. The bright gold-toned ribbed frame has a decorative acanthus leaf border. It is the perfect canvas for any home.

Another famous painting by Waterhouse is the mythological character Lamia from ancient Greek mythology. This character was punished by her king and wife Hera. Hera killed her children and transformed Lamia into a monster. The story goes on to explain how the goddess was saved by the god Zeus. The goddess wanted to help Lamia, so Zeus gave her the power to kill her own eyes. After the two met, they worked together and found a solution.

The story is based on a myth involving Lamia, a mythological character from the Greek mythology. Hera's wife punished her for having an affair with Zeus and subsequently turned her into a monster. She could not sleep, and Zeus wished to help her. The god also gave her the ability to shoot her own eyes. But the hero was not satisfied with this power. This monster had a heart of gold.

The original myth of Lamia tells about the demon Lamia and her children, who were sacrificed to make her king. Hera's punishment was to turn her into a snake-like creature that seduces her male prey. This story was later adapted to the modern world in a poem by John Keats. This poem inspired poets Edgar Allan Poe and the Genesis band.
