Their somewhat equivalent of our shikahndi,  that too with prime emotion of revenge, #Hermaphroditos, son of Hermes and Aphrodite, had rejected the advances of the nymph Salmacis. Unable to resign herself to this rejection, Salmacis persuaded Zeus to merge their two bodies forever, hence the strange union producing one bisexed being with male sexual organs and the voluptuous curves of a woman.

Enea Vico (1523–1567) according to the British Museum and the Museum Boijmans or an anonymous artist as proposed by the Rijksmuseum.
🔸
“Statue of Hermaphroditus in a Niche” (descriptive title only) (aka “Hermaphroditos”), 1552, after Marcantonio Raimondi’s (1470/1482–1527/1534) engraving, “Apollo” and its repetition in reverse (TIB 26[14].332[250] & 333[251]), after a sculpture that was once in the collection of the Palazzo Farnese (as inscribed on plate), from the series, “'Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae” (Mirror of Roman Splendour), published by Antoine Lafréry (aka Antonio Lafreri) (1512–1577) in Rome.
🔸
Engraving on fine laid paper trimmed unevenly along the image borderline and backed with a support sheet.
🔸
Size: (sheet) 33.5 x 21.4 cm.
🔸
Inscribed on plate on pedestal base cartouche: “HERMAPHRODITI STATVA .../ … PALLATIO FARNESIANO COLLOCATA / ANT LAFRERII FORMISS ROMAE MDLII.”
🔸
Huelsen 56–A (Christian Huelsen 1921, “Das Speculum Romanae Magnificentiae des Antonio Lafreri”); Rubach 320 (Birte Rubach 2016, “Ant. Lafreri Formis Romae: Der Verleger Antonio Lafreri und seine Druckgraphikproduktion”, Berlin, Lukas Verlag, p. 415).
🔸
Condition: well-printed crisp impression in a generally clean condition, trimmed along the image borderline with replenished losses and laid upon a support sheet of archival (millennium quality) washi paper.
🔸
I am selling this Renaissance period engraving dated on the plate, “MDLII” (1552)—most likely a lifetime impression based on the crisp quality of the lines showing no sign of wear to the printing plate—for AU$412 (currently US$284.73/EUR255.14/GBP223.65 at the time of this listing) including postage and handling to anywhere in the world (but not, of course, any import duties/taxes imposed by some countries).
🔸
If you are interested in purchasing this rare and (to my eyes) a curiously exciting print, please contact me (oz_jim@printsandprinciples.com) and I will send you a PayPal invoice to make the payment easy.

According to Greek mythology, #hermaphroditos rejected the nymph Salmacis, something that she could not accept. Hermaphroditos, son of Hermes and Aphrodite merged with the nymph’s body.

Hermaphroditos

인간은 본래 양성을 가지고 있었는데, 신이 양쪽으로 분리하고 나서 잃어버린 반쪽을 찾으려 헤매고 다녔다.
플라톤의 <향연>中

헤르마프로디토스
헤르메스와 아프로디테의 아들인 이 미소년에게 첫 눈에 반한 님페 살마키스는 연못에 들어온 소년을 강제로 끌어안고 그와 떨어지지 않게 해달라고 신께 빌었다

소년의 몸은 살마키스와 결합되어 양성을 갖게 되었다
변해버린 자신의 모습에 절망하며 소년은 부모님께 이 연못에 들어오는 누구든 자신과 같은 반쪽 남자가 되게 해달라고 빌었고 부모는 딱한 자식의 소원을 들어주었다

살마키스는 짝사랑하게 된 소년과 영원히 함께할 수 있게 되었지만 헤르마프로디토스는 느닷없이 절망에 빠지게 되고 말았다

양성을 한 몸에 지닌다는 건 완전함과 동시에 재앙인걸까

아무튼
사랑이 잃어버린 반쪽을 찾으려는 욕망이라면
내 욕망은 찢어진 반쪽이 다 가져가 버렸나 봄

"Hermaphroditos Asleep" (Second century AD) by Artist Unknown
Marble
1.69 x 0.89 m
Musée du Louvre, Paris.

There is nothing improper in this work, but it still intrigues the viewer. Hermaphroditos, son of Hermes and Aphrodite, had rejected the advances of the nymph Salmacis. Unable to resign herself to this rejection, Salmacis persuaded Zeus to merge their two bodies forever, hence the strange union producing one bisexed being with male sexual organs and the voluptuous curves of a woman. Stretched out in erotic abandon on the mattress provided by Bernini, the figure sleeps. Yet Hermaphroditos has only fallen half asleep: the twisting pose of the body and the tension apparent down to the slightly raised left foot are indicative of a dream state.

This work is a Roman copy that was probably inspired by a Greek original of the 2nd century BC. Discovered in Rome near the Baths of Diocletian in 1608, this statue was one of the most admired masterpieces of the Borghese Collection in the 17th and 18th centuries. In 1619, Cardinal Scipione Borghese commissioned the baroque italian sculptor Bernini to carve the mattress on which the ancient marble now lies.
