Selene Dream Walker

"From her immortal head a radiance is shown from heaven and embraces earth; and great is the beauty that arises from her shining light." (Homeric Hymn to Selene 2).

 

Selene and her beloved Endymion, who sleeps forever.

Selene and Endymion. Ceiling at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Copenhagen.

 

This bright and clear Titanian goddess, who shines down with soft light and bathes her lovely body in the waters of the Ocean, is the Moon.
