Mysterious Creatures of Ancient Mythology

The thought of a wide-winged, woman-faced, lion-bodied lady might startle you... if you've never studied ancient mythical creatures. If you have studied the genre, you know the sphinx is just as strange and mystifying as described. Believed to have originated in 9,500 B.C., she is said to devour those who could not solve her riddles. Mythology buffs believe there could be essentially hundreds of horned, winged, and scaled ravenous creatures lurking in the artwork and literature of ancient civilizations.

What lessons can be learned from these mythological characters? What does their creation teach us about the hopes, fears and insecurities of mankind? Get ready to battle these questions head-on and more as this playlist takes you on a creature-filled journey into legendary mythology.
