Auguste Rodin La Danaïde Reclining Sculpture Reproduction

This sculpture of the mythological figure Danaide by Auguste Rodin depicts one of the daughters of King Danaos. She is seen leaning on a rock. Greek mythology tells about Danaïde and her forty-nine sisters who married the fifty sons of Aegyptus. Their father, King Danaos, who is in conflict with Aegyptus, orders his daughters to kill their husbands during their wedding night. Their punishment for their horrendous crime was to spend the rest of their lives in the underworld, filling vessels with water which could never be filled. This story gave Rodin the opportunity to visualize the total exhaustion of the female body. Made from bonded bronze. Measures 5.5 in. x 3.5 in. x 2.5 in.
