Original oil painting by Sarah Soward. Oil on panel. 10x10 inches, unframed.
Ganymede is part of my Rhino Moons series. It's a subset of paintings that belong to my larger series, Wandering Stars, that focuses on portraying cosmic bodies and the entities they are named after in the guise of wildlife.
In the case of Jupiter, portraying him as an animal is often simply a direct transfer from the mythology. Jupiter turned himself into an eagle, allegedly, and carried the handsome young Ganymede to Mount Olympus. And what's cuter than a rhino?
