The constellation of Leo is usually associate with the Nemean lion. A giant, golden furred monster from Greek Mythology. It could not be killed by the weapons of mortals and its claws could tear through any defences. Killing the creature was the first labour undertaken by Heracles. Due to his lineage being both mortal and divine (a child of the god Zeus and the mortal Alcmene) his bare hands were divine enough weapons to be up to the task and he defeated it. 

 

Leo combines astronomical and astrological details relating to its principle features as a constellation and as a sign of the zodiac. It is a 3 layer print hand gilded in 24kt Italian Gold Leaf.

 

Regardless of your interest in astronomy and astrology the moment you were born was a singular moment in the history of the universe, the heavenly bodies will never again be in that same configuration. These prints celebrate that moment in time, you and always looking up to the stars.
