Europa & the Bull, by Francesco Zuccarelli




La Mona

"Mona" means "vagina" in Italian. Airborne cloth signifies human passion in Venetian art.

Here Europa wears an "Omega shawl," an ancient sign which the goddesses Inanna and Isis and the Dionysian Bacchantes carry in Mediterranean art. It embodies female energy, agency, and will.
