Greek Mythology

Christina Payton

This coin depicts the Greek Mythology just by the visual elements. You can see the curls that are usually depicted in greek art. Also, the writing on the back of the coin helps you see that it is greek.
The statue Asklepios is from the Hellenistic Period. By looking at it you can tell that it was a statue of a God. He was the the God of Medicine. Again you have the curly hair and God like stance.
The art on the vase depicts Greek mythology. You can see the Gods or soldiers on the all around the vase. There is more than one and they all look like they are protecting themselves or others.
This item is in the Parthenon. It is a sculpture that depicts a Centaur and Lapith. The Centaur is very much apart of Greek Mythology and you can see that there is a Centaur in the sculpture.
This greek mythology vase shows what looks like men of some sort chasing after women at the bottom. There are also people or Gods riding in a chariot. They look like women in the chariot and a men at the front.
This statue is the head of a Goddess. Again in the Greek Mythology art, the curly hair is again depicted. You can also see the staring stance that seems to be depicted in a lot of Greek Artwork.
Just looking at this horse statute looks Greek. It looks like one of the horses that are on the chariots that carry the Gods and Goddesses. It could also possibly be the head of a Pegasus. With more research I am sure there is more to this story.
This artwork on the Parthenon seems to have Gods and Goddesses relaxing on a seat of some sort and other people behind them that could be servents.
This statue seems to depicts some Gods which are taller that the other people riding horses. The other people seem to be lining up. The Gods have a shield which is typically depicted in Greek mythology artwork.
This storage jar has Medusa on it. There is a lot more story to Medusa then depicted on this jar, but not enough room in here to describe it. Clearly Medusa is apart of Greek Mythology. She is what someone would think of often when thinking of Greek Mythology.
