And just for fun, my favorite song from it:

Pan


Pan is the greek god of fields and pastures. He is a satyr and plays the pipes excedingly well. He’s associated with the mother goddess. He’s also believed to be the son of Hermes. 

What he’s best known for, however, is the sexual conquests he makes…. with a variety of things and people.

Hel Drawing


Black Swan


This post has to do with the essay I posted on here earlier – just an interesting video I found.

Art


There’s a vendor on Etsy.com called “ckranz” – she creates a bunch of art pieces based on myth. Here are a few:

This one is of Cupid and Psyche.

This shows the Muses.

This is one of Andromeda.

And Artemis.

Tree Myths


Here’s a great website:

It has tree stories from all around the world, including Christian, Jewish, Greek, Scandinavian and Celtic stories. The tales include a variety of types of trees – from apple to willow.

Mythic Comics


I posted this link in an earlier post: brat-halla.com

Everything is from there.

This is a comic about Odin’s trip to the Well of Wisdom.

This shows Hera and Zeus talking to Odin and Frigg – notice the Persephone story?

This shows a few of the Norse gods (from left to right, top to bottom): Thor (thunder god), Odin (all-father), Loki (trickster god), Baldr (god of beauty), a goat (not a god), Tyr (god of war), Hermod (messenger of the gods), Frigg (goddess of marriage, spinning and fertility), and Hod (blind god of darkness and poetry).

This one’s pretty self-explanatory…

This comic is primarily of Loki – he plays an interesting part in Norse myth. He eventually causes the end of the world and does much to harm the gods, but he also helps them quite often.

Frigg is the domestic goddess, but like Hera, often has a jealous and violent side in mythology…

This shows a lot (if not quite all) of the Norse pantheon.

This shows a bunch of gods from different mythologies… Recognize the story of Osiris and Apollo?

This shows a bunch of different pantheons of gods. Recognize anyone or anything? What about the Roman gods being the Greek gods with differnet names?
