Nice work.... Understood that a god has a crush on him ... The end of the saga I've never liked ... But of course it confirms an old German proverb - Sport is murder ...
Beauty is everywhere and desire is rampant. The sport originally was designed to make it fast, strong and obedient soldiers. The force always has been imposed to reason, by force. Always be the victim is not good business. To violence, zero tolerance. Love is much more pleasant and free.
The great love stories always end with the death of one of the two or with both. Remember Romeo and Juliet and a thousand more stories. It appears that the drama must always accompany the love, but it is a rotten lie. There happy lovers who spend their days enjoying all that will be of this world. Love is inevitable and woe to those who has never been loved.
Simply because if the victim is pretty, gives much more worthwhile. Look at the religious images. All are gorgeous and also victims of violence of other religions and atheism. That's what we saw as children, but the reality is just the opposite. Thanks for your comment.

Very nice adaptation of the Hyakintos myth. One should not ask: why must young people die so early. It is somewhat more like in Mozart's Magic Flute, he had Sarastro say when told that Tamino could even die by the examinations he had to undergo: Then he will enter the divine joys before we do.
Lying largest and oldest. If you die in the service of the powerful, whether God or country, after death you will live in a paradise filled with lust, delicacies, wines and joyful excesses. If they told that after death his body rotted away completely, it is possible that no one obeyed them.

Truly a beautiful image, one of the many myths where a beautiful boy was caught between the love of two gods (Apollo and Zephyr). I like your version better, a tragic accident is slightly better than death by jealousy.
