Did You Know?

The majestic swan has inspired artists, poets, and dreamers for centuries with its stunning beauty and symbolism. In various cultures, swans have been associated with love, transformation, and spiritual awakening. Greek mythology tells the tale of Zeus, who transformed into a swan to pursue the object of his affection, Leda. In literature, Tchaikovsky's ballet masterpiece, "Swan Lake," depicts the captivating story of Odette, a princess cursed to be a swan by day, and the captivating allure of the black swan Odile. These timeless tales have contributed to the swan's portrayal as a symbol of elegance and eternal love.
