I posted this before knowing the winners in the elections, so that I can remain (kind of) apolitical on this blog. Whoever they are, congratulations. And, unlike Theseus Slaying the Minotaur, let's hope that the victors will decide that a better winning strategy is to work with the defeated to solve the big problems that we face.
This is a sculpture by the French artist Antoine Louis Barye (1796 - 1875), currently shown at the Wadsworth Atheneum. It is part of an exhibition of the museum's French works of art, some of which will be shown in later posts.
