More about Lamia
In mythology, Lamia was the mistress of Zeus who was turned into a child eating monster by Zeus’ wife Hera. In John Keats’ poem, she was a beautiful seductress who marries young men in order to devour them. In this painting, Lamia is seen on her knees while she gazes into the eyes of a soldier. A version of this painting is currently at the Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand.
