(each set comprises: 1x Zeus bull + herd of bulls and cows)

According to Greek myth, Zeus, the God of Thunder, set about abducting the Goddess Europa by disguising himself as a bull and concealing himself in a herd of cattle.
This set of dining chairs re-enacts that myth, with Zeus - distinguished by his lightning-bolt forequarters - accompanied by a herd of bulls and cows.
It is proposed that female dinner guests should be seated on bulls, whilst male guests should be seated on cows. One guest - or, perhaps, the hostess - is elevated to the status of Goddess by being seated on Zeus.
