This painting features Zeus as Swan, overlooking Pollux in Hades, and Castor in Mount Olympus.
As the tale goes– after a fatal ambush by Idas and Lynceus, Zeus gave his son, Pollux two choices– return to Mount Olympus, or give up half his immortality to his dying half-brother, Castor.
Pollux, in the ultimate act of love, decided to share his immortality, enabling the twins to experience immortality and death, as they alternated between worlds.
