Hygieia ( 1901) 


Hygieia depicts the Greek goddess of hygiene and health. When you look closer, you can draw inferences from the face at the back and the pregnant woman. 


According to Greek myth, Hygieia was the goddess of hygiene, health, cleanliness, and sanitation. In fact, the snake and the bowl remain one of the symbols of pharmacology to this day. In this context, Hygieia was not a femme fatale but belonged instead to the traditional categorization of women as caretakers.


This explanation of Hygieia contrasts with Klimt's powerful, inscrutable, and even ominous depiction of her, and we totally love it.
