favourite faces for favourite mythic ladies: Metis with Alicia Vikander

Devoured by her husband, wise and cunning Metis was not unproductive. Within Zeus the pregnant Titaness worked away, chiselling free slices of the Stormbringer’s bones with which she built a sword. Sharp and strong, Metis could have cut herself free, but it wasn’t yet time.

The day is coming, the day is coming.

While Athena kicked at her belly (impatient, quickly growing, demanding) Metis tore loose muscle and meat from the walls of her prison, beating it into silver with her bare fist while the other hand pressed against the child inside. In the flesh of Zeus it was hot and stifling, but her daughter would be born into the light.

The day is coming.
