English: King Midas with his daughter, from A Wonder Book for Boys and Girls by Nathaniel Hawthorne (text author)[1]
Türkçe: Kral Midas efsanesini anlatan, Nathaniel Hawthorne tarafından yazılmış 1893 tarihli bir kitaptan bir illüstrasyon (1893). Yunan mitolojisine göre, tanrı Baküs, Midas'a dokunduğu her şeyi altına dönüştürme yeteneğini vermişti. Ancak Midas kısa sürede görmüştü ki yemek dahi yiyememektedir. Baküs ona Pactolus nehrinde (Sart Çayı) yıkanmasını söyler ve nehrin içine altın tozu akar. Sonraki yıllarda nehirde altın bulunmasının nedeni buna atfedilir. Resimde Midas kızına dokunmuş ve onu altına çevirmiştir.
