Latona and the Lycian Peasants, Jan Brueghel (I), c. 1605

olieverf op paneel, h 37cm × w 56cm. More details

No one insults a goddess and remains unpunished. Tired and parched, Latona, the mother of Apollo and Diana, halts to quench her thirst at a pond. Some peasants working nearby, however, prevent her from doing so. Latona curses them by changing them into frogs and condemning them to spend eternity in the mire. Two peasants already have a frog’s head.
