Leda was the mother of two sets of twins in Greek Mythology. She was raped by the god Zeus disguised as a swan. She bore two children from that encounter who were fathered by Zeus but she also had relations with her husband the same night and got pregnant by him as well and had two more children with her husband being the father. Wild tale, yeah?
Anyway, Leonardo DaVinci planned to paint Leda and the swan and made some drawings of her head in preparation for this endeavor. See here for his drawings.
This week’s fact is courtesy of #2 son who showed me a drawing he made this week of Leda’s head. He didn’t trace it. He drew it free hand. And all along, I thought my other son was the artist. LOL! Here’s my son’s drawing:
