Hubris

in
Statue of Niobe, Jardin d’Eté, Arles, France

There are times when no matter how much you try to bridge the gap, understanding is inaccessible. Niobe’s story is about the sin of hubris. She is weeping the murder of her 7 sons and 7 daughters (some say only 6 of each gender were slain) by Artemis and Apollo. It is a mystery to me the circumstances that prompted the author’s of this park to chose to include this statue.
