Where Would we be without mythology? - (Junior Dossantos)

Greek Mythology consists of many gods, titans, creatures and monsters. With this gallery I hope to capture great depictions of many of these. Some of the figures that will be represented in this gallery are; Zeus, Hermes, Centaurs, Medusa, Pegasus as well as a few others. This gallery will prove that seeing is believing.

Zeus This piece of artwork is a statue depicting the Greek god Zeus sitting upon his throne. It features Zeus holding up his right arm with his hand missing due to age of the statue. This could very well be a representation of him holding a lightening bolt, which he is usually depicted holding. The structure of his face and hair are represented as many of the gods were in ancient history.
Hercules This image is a depiction of Hercules fighting off the Nemean Lion, which he is most famous for. This piece seems to be a drawing or sketch of some sort. The lines in this image help bring shape to the body of Hercules as well as give the lion definition.
Medusa This painting is a depiction of Perseus using the head of Medusa to turn his enemies into stone. Medusa is known for her snake-like hair and eyes that turn men to stone if looked into. This piece features many vibrant colors that give focus to certain aspects of the image. This image also features a depth to it. The background is distinguished to be further away from the people in the image.
Centaurs This painting is a depiction of the Mythological creature known as the Centaur speaking to what looks like the Greek god Apollo. Centaurs are creatures that feature a man with a horse’s body. This piece shows movement of the characters drawn. For example you can see what looks like Apollo playing the harp.
Pegasus This piece is a picture of a coin that features the Mythological create known as Pegasus. The creature features a horse with large wings who is known to be able to fly. This piece shows depth with the sculpture of the creature. Depth helps give detail to the Pegasus’ wings and hair.
Poseidon This piece is one of my favorites. It features the Greek god Poseidon holding his famous triton and looks to be helping sailors out at sea. Poseidon is the god of the sea and is known to control the waves of the ocean. This Painting features lines that help structure what is represented in the image.
Aphrodite This sculpture is a depicting of the Greek goddess Aphrodite. She features what looks like a sheet wrapped around her. Her hair seems to be braided and she is wearing what looks like a hat. The sculpture shows movement of the goddess and the sheet she wears.
Athena This sculpture is a depiction of the head of the Greek Goddess Athena. The city of Athens was named after this goddess. This piece features the head and neck of the goddess. Her face doesn’t show much detail of emotion and features her wearing a hat of some sort.
Apollo This sculpture is a depiction of the Greek god Apollo holding his famous harp. This piece features great detail in his facial emotion but not much of his body. The harp he is holding does not look as if it was sculpted with any depth to it.
Hermes This last piece is a metallic sculpture of the Greek god Hermes. Hermes is depicted with a helmet with wings on it as well as shoes/sandals with wings on them as well. He holds a scepter in one hand and is known to be able to travel very fast between the human world and the world of gods. This sculpture features many great details and represents the figure of Hermes very well.
