Background

Leda and the Swan is a story and subject in art from Greek mythology in which the god Zeus, in the form of a swan, seduces or rapes Leda. According to later Greek mythology, Leda bore Helen and Polydeuces, children of Zeus, while at the same time bearing Castor and Clytemnestra, children of her husband Tyndareus, the King of Sparta. The subject owed its sixteenth-century popularity to the paradox that it was considered more acceptable to depict a woman in the act of copulation with a swan than with a man.

Leda lives alone in a family estate in this reimagining of the ancient myth. Haunted by a divine presence and recurring memories, she begins to lose touch with reality and time. Her dream-like world spirals into a nightmare of madness as her belly begins to grow.
