"Adonis with huntsman's cloak"

Public DomainAdonis

A cult figure of classical times, Adonis represents rebirth and the continuance of youth. Born from incest between his mother Myrrha and her father Theias, King of Syria, Adonis died at the tusks of a wild boar. Where his blood spilt, each drop is said to have turned into a blood-red flower. In modern times, his name is commonly used in relation to handsome male youths.
