A bronze Leda strides, gazing unwaveringly forward—it is a moment of strength and control. Slung by its feet from her right hand is a ghostly white cast resin swan, Zeus—no longer a threat, as across her shoulder lies an axe at the ready. As the story is rewritten, a heroine emerges as the author of her fate.
