 The Head of Medusa, 1617-1618 by Peter Paul Rubens
The planets speak an ancient dialect of myth. Their names recall all that happened before history, before science, when Prometheus hung shackled to that cliff in the Caucasus for stealing fire from the sky, and Europe was not yet a continent but a still a girl, beloved by a god, who beguiled her disguised as a bull.
