Bernini, Apollo and Daphne. Apollo, one of the most powerful gods mocked the god of love Eros for his use of bow and arrow, saying "What have you to do with warlike weapons? Leave them for hands worthy of them. Behold the conquest I have won by means of them over the vast serpent who stretched his poisonous body over acres of the plain! Be content with your torch, child, and kindle up your flames, as you call them, where you will, but presume not to meddle with my weapons."

Gian Lorenzo Bernini's sculpture of Apollo Daphne. It depicts the virgin nymph Daphne turning into a laurel tree in order to escape Apollo. The Ash Tree Nymphs were generated from Uranus blood resulting from his castration by Cronus.
