, salut, c'est Manon Bril, et on se retrouve pour le dernier épisode tourné au musée d'art et d'histoire de Genève.
Hey there, this is Manon Bril, and we meet again for the last episode shot at the Museum of History and Arts of Geneva.
Et le dernier thème qu'on va aborder aujourd'hui, c'est celui de l'enlèvement d'Europe.
And the last theme we will talk about today is the abduction of Europa.
Eh oui, l'Europe, c'est pas que des coupes, c'est aussi des enlèvements !
Yes, Europa isn't only about cups, it's also about abductions!
Et avant d'être un continent, Europe, eh bien c'est un personnage de la mythologie.
And before being a continent, Europa is a character of the mythology.
Le savais tu ?
Did you know?
C'est une princesse phénicienne, princesse de la ville de Tyr (située aujourd'hui au Liban), qui est très belle et qui une fois de plus, est victime de la lubricité de Zeus.
She's a phoenician princess, princess of the city of Tyr (today in Lebanon), who is very beautiful, and once again is a victim of Zeus' lechery.
Vous savez que Zeus, c'est un dieu qui a beaucoup de crushes, et qui court après homme ou femme, mortel ou immortel…
You know that Zeus is a god who has crushes on lots of people, and who chases men or women, mortal or immortal...
D'ailleurs pour les mortels ça se finit souvent pas très bien.
And by the way, for the mortals, it often doesn't end very well.
Donc , pour approcher Europe, Zeus décide de se changer en très beau taureau blanc, et puis il se mélange au troupeau du père d'Europe.
So to approach Europa, Zeus decides to transform himself into a very beautiful white bull, and then he blends into the herd of Europa's father.
Et donc Europe est complètement fascinée par la beauté de la bête, donc elle essaie de l'approcher.
So Europa is completely fascinated by the beauty of the beast, and tries to get closer to him.
Et comme il est gentil, tout doux, évidemment, elle commence à jouer avec, elle lui met des couronnes de fleurs, tout ça, hein !
And as he's nice and sweet, of course, she starts playing with him, she gives him flower crowns, all that!
Pauvre enfant innocent qui ne sait pas que c'est un dieu qui veut la prendre.
Poor child who doesn't know he's a god who wants to take her.
Et elle finit par grimper sur son dos. Et , le taureau détale.
And she ends up climbing on his back. And there, the bull runs away.
Zeus court sur la plage, fonce vers l'océan.
Zeus runs on the beach, goes straight to the ocean.
Il continue d'avancer en nageant dans l'eau.
He keeps going forward swimming in the water.
Et Europe, prise de panique avec la vitesse, etc, ne peut pas descendre.
And Europa, panicked because of the speed and everything, can't get down.
Et il nage, il nage, il nage, il nage comme ça jusqu'en Crète il va tranquillement lui faire trois enfants.
And he swims, he swims, he swims like that until Crete where he will give her three children, easy.
Et cette fois, pour illustrer ce thème, on a choisi un support assez original par rapport à ce qu'on fait d'habitude dans ces vidéos.
And this time, to illustrate this theme, we chose a pretty original medium compared to what we usually do in our videos.
C'est une tapisserie qui date d'entre 1660 et 1670.
It's a tapestry dating back from between 1660 and 1670.
Donc on retrouve, au centre de la tapisserie, Europe sur le taureau Zeus.
So we can see, at the centre of the tapestry, Europa on the bull Zeus.
Ils sont déjà avancés dans l'eau, etc.
They're already in the water and so on.
Et sur les berges, au loin, on voit les compagnes d'Europe qui sont catastrophées de la voir se faire enlever, partir, loin…
And on the seashores, far away, we can see Europa's companions who are devastated to see her being kidnapped, leaving, far...
"Partir un jour sans retour..."
"Leaving one day with no return..."
Et on voit, hein, les colliers de fleurs qu'Europe avait mis sur le taureau pour jouer avec lui, pauvre enfant naïve…
And we can see the flower's necklaces that Europa had put on the bull to play with him, poor naive child...
Les enfants, ne mettez pas des couronnes de fleurs sur les taureaux. Vous allez vous faire enlever.
Kids, don't put flower crowns on bulls. You will get kidnapped.
Quant à savoir si Europe a donné son nom au continent ou pas, il y a une tradition ancienne qui disait ça mais déjà ça rendait les grecs sceptiques.
As to whether Europa gave her name to the continent or not, an ancient tradition claimed that, but the Greeks were already skeptical about it.
Par exemple, Hérodote, qu'on considère un peu comme le père de l'Histoire (qui a vécu au cinquième siècle avant notre ère), il avait déjà des doutes sur la question.
For exemple, Herodotus, whom is considered as the father of History (who lived in the fifth century before our era), he already had some douts on the matter.
Ben faut dire qu'Europe, déjà, elle a même jamais foulé le continent européen en fait.
Well, it should be said that Europa, to begin with, never set foot on the European continent actually.
Puisqu'elle vient de Tyr, donc en Asie mineure, et puis elle a été emmenée en Crète par Zeus.
As she's from Tyr, in Asia Minor, and then she was brought to Crete by Zeus.
Et ensuite elle finit en Lycie, donc dans la zone de la Turquie actuelle.
And then she ends up in Lycia, in today's Turkey.
Donc finalement, elle a jamais foulé le continent européen… donc bon : bullshit !
So in the end, she never set foot on the European continent... so, well: bullshit!
Bref, en tous cas si dans l'histoire de l'art vous voyez une jeune fille en panique sur le dos d'un taureau qui nage dans la mer, ben vous saurez que c'est Zeus et Europe.
Anyway, if in art history you ever see a panicked young woman on the back of a bull swiming in the sea, well you will know it is Zeus and Europa.
Et voilà, c'est la fin de notre série de vidéos au musée d'art et d'histoire de Genève.
That's it, this is the end of our serie of videos in the Museum of Art and History of Geneva.
On remercie très chaleureusement le musée de nous avoir accueillis ici, on était très contents.
We thank the museum very warmly for welcoming us, we were very happy.
C'est vraiment un musée magnifique, je vous encourage beaucoup à aller le voir, la collection est extrêmement variée.
This is really a wonderful museum, I strongly encouraging you to go and see, the collection is extremely diversified.
