Bronze sculpture ” Daphne”

Bronze sculpture Daphne

“Daphne”. Apollo attempted to take her by force; she asked Gaea to help her. The earth opened and Daphne disappeared. In her place a laurel tree sprang from the ground. Apollo embraced the tree, cut of a branch to wear as a wreath and declared the tree sacred. In honor of Apollo a crown of laurel leaves became the symbol of victory for the Olympic Games.
