"Art Deco - The Flight of Europa (1925) - sign. Paul Manship"

Weight 5,3 kg
With The Flight of Europa, the American artist Paul Manship recreates the Greek myth about the abduction of Europa, bridging the gap between classical elegance and modernity with this Art Deco sculpture. Inspired by the countless mythological works of art on the isle of Crete, The Flight of Europa is the result of the artist’s personal creative reception of the legendary myth of Europa and Zeus.

Distancing himself from the classically antique figure, Manship constructs a motif that stands out especially because of its contrasting depiction of motion and calmness. Zeus, in the shape of a massive bull is portrayed in a powerful contrast to the figure of the delicate Europa who remains on his back in this Art Deco Design.

The Flight of Europa is a snapshot that depicts the abduction of Europa to the isle of Crete, where the young girl gives into the sexual advances of Zeus, the father of the gods. In the arts, this myth is one of the most often addressed legends of mythology.

The Flight of Europa is only available in an exclusive, limited edition of 20 items, which are numbered individually and furnished with the adopted signature of Paul Manship of the original piece.
