"Daphné Changée en Laurier" by Antoine Bourdelle is a bronze statue that depicts the mythological figure Daphne transformed into a laurel tree. Daphne was a nymph in Greek mythology who was pursued by the god Apollo. To escape his advances, she was transformed into a laurel tree by the god Zeus. In Bourdelle's statue, Daphne is depicted in the moment of her transformation, her form fluidly blending with the branches of the laurel tree. The statue captures the sense of movement and change in the myth, while also highlighting the timeless beauty of the female form. At the time of its creation, "Daphné Changée en Laurier" was widely praised for its innovative style and its powerful depiction of a timeless story. This statue remains a significant example of Bourdelle's ability to merge classical forms with modern elements, creating works that are both timeless and contemporary.
