R320.00

Hygeia is part of a larger painting called Medicine which was executed for the Great Hall ceiling of the Vienna University. The original plan was to decorate the ceiling of the University with four rectangular panels which symbolize the four traditional faculties of the University – Theology, Philosophy, Jurisprudence and Medicine surrounding a larger central panel representing the Triumph of Light over Darkness. The figure of Hygeia was depicted at the bottom of Medicine with a snake winding around her right arm and the cup of Lethe in her left. According to the Greek mythology, Hygeia is the daughter of Aesculapius, the first doctor and god of medicine and healing in Greek mythology.
