Description: Daphnis and Chloe is an Ancient Greek tale that follows a boy and a girl from young, naive love, through trials and tribulations and finally to a happy ending together. In Maillol's depiction, he shows the more mature Daphnis and Chloe, happy together and expecting a child. It is a touching portrait of a profound love that was hard earned.
