In Greek mythology, Eos is the Titan Goddess of the Dawn. Described as a rosy-fingered, ethereal beauty, draped in a saffron gown, it is said she would rise from her home at the edge of the Oceanus to open the gates of Heaven, allowing her brother Helios - Lord of the Sun, to ride his chariot through the sky. This intaglio depicts her morning flight with Eros, the God of Love. He gallantly holds a torch, lighting her path.
Rich in history, Pyrrha Intaglios are cast from antique Greek and Roman mythological relief carvings that were once collected as souvenirs by Europeans embarking on an educational rite of passage known as the Grand Tour.
