    After seeing this painting, I read up on Tintoretto, by way of looking for an explanation of why Minerva rejects Mars. I found this unrelated item about Mars in fiction:
    Le prisonnier de la planète Mars [Vampires of Mars] (1908) and its sequel La guerre des vampires [War of the Vampires] (1909) by Gustave Le Rouge. French engineer Robert Darvel is dispatched to Mars by the psychic powers of Hindu Brahmins.

    Still looking. Ovid . . . ? Maybe you can explain, Jan Olof.

    She protects Peace and Prosperity, to the left. There is no metamorphosis taking place so probably not Ovid.
