A chest full of myths Our students exchange myths and legends from their home countries and learn about each other’s attitudes. We show links between different regions and cultures. In many legends and myths of mankind, there are the strangest characters and creatures. A List of legendary creatures and the interpretation appears in almost every culture worldwide. For thousands of years people became worry about the existence of so-called mythical beings. Dragon, Minotaur, Centaur unicorn or Grief, all these beings are creatures of imagination from the mythology of different peoples. Mythical tell us much about our underlying perceptions and show a connection to the history of the cultural circle in which they are found. We show these creatures by legends from our home countries (Greek and German mythology) and we demonstrate how we can meet all these in paintings of great painters, in our daily-life (Pegasus symbol of Korinthos) and in other sciences(Pegasus in Astronomy).
