John William Waterhouse (1849-1917) "Lamia" Oil on canvas Pre-Raphaelite Located in the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki, Auckland, New Zealand "Lamia" was inspired by John Keats’s 1820 poem of the same name. Set in the wild hills of ancient Greece during an "evening dim at moth time," the poem speaks of a young charioteer who hearing a soft voice calling – "a maid more beautiful than [any] ever with twisted braid" – falls madly in love with her. He is unaware that in reality she is a monstrous half-serpent, who transforms into a woman’s form to prey on young men. The only visual clue to her nature captured is the molted snake-skin draped about her.
