MÉCÉNAT AU CHÂTEAU DE LAUBADE

Sophia Vari
Leda and the Cygnet

Sophia Vari, was first a painter. But she couldn’t feel physically enough the strengths of volumes and geometry that the reality of world is composed of. By sculpting imposing works, with a massive presence in the space, she gave to these tensions all their vital sense. The statue « Leda and the Cygnet » is borne from this quest. Leda and the Cygnet are fusing together, remembering the earthly union between Zeus, shaped as a Cygnet, and a young woman, Leda. This union is the logo of Château de Laubade and the other properties of the Lesgourgues family. It aims to express the blending of voluptuousness and pleasure from gods with the human elegancy and sobriety. This is the secret of Armagnac. Sleeping from decades, they could offer an exquisite pleasure to the experienced aesthete. The beauty will spread generously, free from the time pressure.
