Norman translated his passion for Greek myths into numerous pictures. In Pegasus Norman etched a group of Grecian figures dominated by two winged horses. The original Pegasus, a son of Poseidon, sprang fully formed from the body of the monster Medusa, after she was slain by the hero Perseus. Athena tamed Pegasus with her golden bridle and gave him to Bellerophon. The fabulous winged horse has become a symbol for freedom and unlikely liberation for writers from Shakespeare to Longfellow.Pegasus was an image made for Norman's imagination.
Rose posed for the figure in the helmet which Norman had made out of papier mache. She is wearing the same footwear as in Phyllida. In October 1939 Rose presented a print of Pegasus to the Art Gallery of New South Wales for exhibition in their newly opened Print Room.
