Context when viewing the art installation
- Zeus visited earth, specifically Arcadia. At this time, he showed signs that he was a god. The people praised and gave offerings to Zeus. Lycaon, the Arcadian King, decided to test if this visitor truly was a god or a mortal. Lycaon killed and cooked a human to serve the visitor as the test. As soon as Lycaon served Zeus, Zeus revealed his avenging thunderbolt intending to punish Lycaon. Zeus used this encounter to justify turning Lycaon into a wolf and later to justify the use of a flood to wipe the human race.
