Here is an intriguing and captivating introduction to the culturally diverse world of mythology. Stunning photographs of masks, jewelry and sculptures offer a unique "eyewitness" view of mythology and its gods, heroes and monsters. See the world in a sealskin, Quetzalcoatl's spectacular headdress, Native American love dolls, a fire-breathing dragon, African trickster Eshu, the one-eyed Cyclops and golden Garuda, an animal idol. Learn about the supernatural powers of the gods, the mystical powers of shamans, the purpose of the Native American Sun Dance, the story behind the stunning medicine beaver mask and why Romulus and Remus were reared by a wolf. Discover who swallowed the Sun god Ra, the secrets of the towering totem pole, the sacred art of sandpainting, how many animals make a Chimera, who had snakes for hair and the magical powers of Thor's hammer, and much, much more!
