Description
 
The Birth of Pegasus
The Pegasus is a winged divine stallion and one of the best known creatures in Greek mythology. When the great Perseus struck the head of Medusa, whom Poseidon had been seeing in a form of a horse or bird, there sprang forth from her Chrysaor and the horse Pegasus. The Pegasus is best known by his capture from Bellerophon. Bellerophon needed Pegasus to slay the infamous Chimaera but had no luck in catching him. He went forth to spend a night in the temple of Athena and as he was sleeping the goddess appeared to him in a dream. She commanded him to sacrifice to Poseidon and gave him a golden bridle. When he awoke he found the bridle, offered the sacrifice, caught Pegasus, and defeated the Chimaera. With an overwhelming pride he commanded Pegasus to ride up to the Heavens but was flung back to earth by Zeus and Pegasus continuing on without him. In the Heavens Pegasus was the thundering horse of Zeus and placed in the stars.

Along with the image of Pegasus is the goddess Athena. She is the symbol of wisdom, courage, inspiration, civilization, law and justice, strength, war strategy, and the arts. Athena is known for her calm temperament and noted to have only fought for just reasons and would not fight without a purpose.
