The Greek period left a lot of fairy tales, and there are still a lot of people who are particularly interested in Greek stories. Take a look at our Greek Apollo and Daphne sculpture. Apollo and Daphne sculpture was created by Italian sculptor Gian Lorenzo Benini. It’s one of his masterpieces, and at the same time, he was also creating another art of sculpture David. You can also check out David’s sculpture on our website. We also made David sculpture. The work of Apollo and Daphne is now in the Ghese Museum in Rome, Italy. It based on an ancient Greek myth, shows Daphne changing into a laurel tree when touched by Apollo’s hand. The Apollo and Daphne sculpture is an ancient Greek fairy tale retold in the form of amorous little stories by Greek and Roman writers.

This marble sculpture shows the moment when Apollo’s hand touches Daphne’s body. Both of them are running in the wind, and their bodies are light and graceful. The beautiful Daphne has begun to turn into a laurel tree but has not been fully transformed. Her strong legs gradually became tree trunks, implanted in the earth, and leaves grew out of her flowing hair and delicate fingers. Daphne’s beauty was not dimmed by the fact that a part of her body had become vegetated. Her flying posture, arms, and body formed a beautiful S shape, so that all the audience admire the beauty of the young girl. And the side of her head, with its frightened eyes, was easy to pity. In contrast, Apollo helplessly watched his beloved woman become a laurel tree, but there was no way to recover, his expression also became helpless up. His left hand stretched forward, gently wrapping itself around Daphne’s body, and his right hand extended diagonally below, still in a chasing posture. Our Apollo and Daphne sculptures also depict all these details and have received many positive comments from our clients.

Indeed, it is really a great work of art. The sculptor put this moment of change is very wonderful, still running Daphne has seen the fingertips into branches and leaves, her beautiful body is about to become a fragrant osmanthus. It is rare in the history of art to transform the body and branches into such a natural, real and elegant transformation on stone. But think of it another way, does this also reflect the protection of vulnerable women? When a woman is about to be assaulted, a force protects her from a man’s aggression. In fact, I hope this sculpture can appeal to more people to pay attention to the protection of women. It would be the perfect decoration for a public place.
