Unheroic Labours #2

Charles Quevillon

The work revisits Hercules’s second labour, which was to kill the multi-headed water serpent Hydra. However, in the artwork, killing is replaced with dancing, and the monster Hydra is not the mythic hydra, but rather the real freshwater polyp Hydra. And cats like water.
