A New Special Resin: The Mighty Pegasus!

Today it's quite miserable outside, which can only mean one thing, lots more crafting inside where it's warm and dry! Also, to help lift your spirits metaphorically and somewhat literally, check out our newest resin piece... the mighty Pegasus!

The winged divine stallion is usually depicted as pure white in colour, making this resin even more perfect! In the original Greek mythology, he was sired by Poseidon, the god of the sea, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa.

Greco-Roman poets write about his ascent to heaven after his birth and his obeisance to Zeus, king of the gods, who instructed him to bring lightning and thunder from Olympus. Friend of the Muses, Pegasus is the creator of Hippocrene, the fountain on Mt. Helicon.

He was captured by the Greek hero Bellerophon near the fountain Peirene with the help of Athena and Poseidon. Pegasus allows the hero to ride him to defeat a monster, the Chimera, before realizing many other exploits. His rider, however, falls off his back trying to reach Mount Olympus. Zeus transformed him into the constellation Pegasus and placed him up in the sky.

So there is a lot of history behind these pieces, and the striking images and resins will bring a life a whole new layer of detail and context which people of all ages can appreciate! Perfect for children who love fantasy creatures, those with mythological interest, and those who appreciate historical stories!
