Dude. Not 'rape'. More like 'kidnapping' or something.

This is one of my favorite Greek myths; you did a fantastic job with color harmony and the shadows. :)

Europa was rapted... or raped... itīs confusing because of one single word :P
but as far as I remember, Europa wasnīt raped at all... bah, there are different versions about the same myth

I ancient Greece rape did not mean what it means today. It ment abduction or kidnap. I hope that helps with the confusion, and dont worry I use to think the same. ;)
