Masterful portrayal of Leda & The Swan by the sculptor Paco Durrio. This symbolist pendant shows the God Zeus having transformed himself into a swan in order to seduce the beautiful Queen Leda. The reverse shows a rarely depicted portrayal of Zeus & Leda in human form embracing.
The sculptural front & back of this Paco Durrio pendant exhibit his amazing genius in combining the contrasting bas reliefs into one reversible jewel.
Very good
