Derived from Ovid's Metamorphosis, Bernini depicted the moment in the story when Apollo, stuck by one of Cupid's arrows, pursues Daphne, the daughter of a river god. As she attempts escape, she prays to her father for help and he responds by transforming his daughter into a laurel tree, sprouting leaves and branches from her feet, hair and hands.
