Apollo and Daphne greek alabaster statue

Handmade greek alabaster statue of Apollo and Daphne, replica of the famous statue made by Bernini, based on the greek myth of Apollo and Daphne

Handmade greek alabaster statue of Apollo and Daphne, replica of the famous statue made by Bernini, based on the greek myth of Apollo and Daphne. A lovely souvenir from Greece!

This statue is inspired by the 17th century Baroque life-sized marble statue of Gian Lorenzo Bernini. Apollo clutches Daphne's hip, pursuing her as she flees to escape him. Apollo wears on his head a laurel crown, and Daphne is portrayed halfway through her metamorphosis into the laurel tree with her arms already transforming into its branches as she flees and calls to her father to save her from Apollo.

According to the Greek Mythology, Apollo fell fiercely in love with the nymph Daphne and started chasing her. Exhausted, Daphne begged her father, Pinios, to help her. So in order to avoid Apollo when the god tried to hug her, the poor nymph was transformed into a tree. Apollo, then, to console himself he cut a branch from the tree and was crowned. Since then the laurel is the sacred plant of the god Apollo.
