Malus Domestica

Another Apples Series… more and more apples. This time I decide to get further into the subject, exploring mythology and more symbolism.

Like the Golden Apple (Atalanas’s Mistake), when Melanion used golden apples to distract Atalanta so that he could win the race and married her, or the story of Venus Verticoria, who was able to change lust into chastity.

Mais uma série sobre Maças… mais e mais maças. Desta vez eu decidi me aprofundar no tema, explorando a mitologia e simbolismo.

Como a Maça Dourada (Erro de Atalana), quando Melanion usou maças douradas para distrair Atalana e pode ganhar a corrida e assim, ter o direito de casar-se com ela ou a estória da Venus que era capaz de transformar luxúria em castidade.

The sum of all apples
