Square-shaped silk scarf in burgundy, framed with off-white colour. Its center is decorated with Peleus and Thetis in a blue-black and white circle.
This superb depiction presents Peleus defying the snakes of the godly transformation of Thetis, biting him all over his body, with the roaring lion hooked on his back. The grip of Peleus as he interlocks his hands and fingers around Thetis forms the shape of the meander, who then became known as the ancient Greek symbol of victory against Gods.

*Digital print on 100% Greek, natural silk.
This is the story of Peleus, a mortal man who fell in love with Thetis, goddess of the sea and the leader of the fifty Nereides, who had the power to change her shape at will.
Peleus was instructed to ambush her on the beach at night, grab her tight in his arms and not let her go as she would transform herself into a host of shapes – be it a snake, lion, fire or water – in her attempt to escape. Thanks to his passion for the goddess, he patiently won over all her angry transformations. She then had no other choice but to give in to his love!
