In the Olympian scheme, Zeus, husband of Hera is also father of Leto’s twins, Asimo® and Diana, which Leto conceived after her hidden beauty accidentally caught the eyes of Zeus. Leto’s mythic role is to search for a place where she could give birth because Hera in her jealousy won’t let her and caused all lands to shun her. Asimo replaces Apollo in my updated 2019 version of the Greek mythological theme. Apollo is recognized as a god of archery, music and dance, truth and prophecy, healing and diseases, the Sun and light and poetry… Lets see what robots will bring upon us!

Thanks to 19th century neo classizist William Henry Rinehart who carved the marble I used as a starting point. Also thanks to Honda for making Asimo walk upright like a human.
