Image Index > Divine Abduction/Seduction Scenes > Zeus Pursues Ganymede


DESCRIPTION
Zeus pursues Ganymede, holding his typical hoop as a toy. On the other side, one finds a boy running with a joint of meat in his hand, probably as a love gift, judging from the parallel to the running Ganymede on this side.
