Hermes silk twill scarf, hand rolled, 36" x 36"

Greek mythology is a rich storehouse of thousands of tall tales, nourishing the Western cultural tradition. One of its most famous stories is that of the winged horse Pegasus. The Gorgon Medusa, a dangerous creature with snakes for hair, turned anyone who looked her in the eyes to stone. Perseus killed her by cutting off her head. Chrysaor and Pegasus sprang from her severed neck. By a fantastical metamorphosis, a land-locked animal is transformed into a creature of the air. But another transformation lies in store. Captured by Bellerophon – who tries to ride the flying horse to heaven, and plummets to his death in a fall – Pegasus becomes a constellation of stars. Inspired by this double identity, Dimitri Rybaltchenko presents a sparkling, multi-faceted portrait of the divine mount, whose symbolic power has inspired artists and poets throughout history.
