When Zeus seduced Europe disguised as a bull, as in Greek mythology, I'm sure he looked much scarier than these chubby monsters depicted by Mirosedina in the 'Metamorphosis Abduction Europe.' Her paintings are full of irony and good fun, as if the girl is having the time of her life, caught in tender, playful moments with the bull.

On the other hand, a bit of irony on the subject comes just at the right moment -- with the immigrant issues many European countries are dealing with these days, there's been quite a discussion about a new abduction of Europe.
