Photographer's Note

'Zeus, Leda, Prometheus and Pegasus Visit Bruges', a bronze sculpture by Belgian artist Jef Claerhout in Walplein, Bruges, Belgium.

Actually this is only part of the whole sculpture: Leda (and her swan) and Prometheus who are in the carriage driven by Zeus and pulled by Pegasus, cannot be seen. I really liked this quirky and irreverent take on a raft of Greek myths: Zeus like a bank manager in a bowler hat?? Jef Claerhout tells fantastic stories that his grandfather told him as a child: folkloric stories, in which humour, mythology and irony have been incorporated into fabulous figures, animals, birds and horses.

Here it is on Google Maps.
