Rhinemaidens - Arthur Rackham

From the classic illustrations of Wagner's great Ring cycle -- fifteen hours of stirring, provocative opera giving the best creation myth you're likely to hear -- comes this depiction of the Rhinemaidens, imploring the Gods on their Rainbow Bridge above to return the Rheingold.

The rape of the Rheingold is where the trouble all begins . . .

NB: Have a wee look at this post for a hint as to the meaning of this particular creation myth.
