|METAMORPHOSIS 2: DANAE|
Danae was the daughter of Acrisius.
An oracle warned Acrisius that Danae's
son would someday kill him, so
Acrisius shut Danae in a bronze room,
away from all male company. However,
Zeus conceived a passion for Danae,
and came to her through the roof, in
the form of a shower of gold that
poured down into her lap; as a result
she had a son, Perseus.
