Hermes was the Greek god of commerce, son of Zeus and Maia( one of the daughters of the Titan Atlas). Quick acting and cunning, he was able to move swiftly between the world of man and the world of gods, acting as a messenger of the gods and the link between mortals & the gods.
He was the protector of travelers, traders, thieves & athletes. He occassionally tricked the other gods for his own amusement or in an effort to protect humans.
Hey Cerberus. What's on the menu.
Cerberus guarded the entrance to the underworld. Home of Hades. Nothing gets past this three headed always angry and looking for a fight beast😌
I don't know how this dog looked like as a puppy or as puppies depending on how you look at this creature.
Trevi Fountain in Rome is absolutely incredible, especially at night. Arriving a couple hours before dark allowed me to assess the situation and figure out where I was going to shoot from once the sun went down. The only issue was there were mobs of people surrounding it and I wanted the focus to be on the sculptures not the humans taking selfies around it. I spent some time walking around trying to figure out where it could be taken without people in the frame. It took a while, but eventually I found a hotel that had a rooftop bar with a spectacular view. They charged $20 to get in and it included a drink. It was so worth it. #rome#trevifountain#baroque#sculpture#oceanus#canon#longexposure
Sea monsters were common in Greek mythology. Poseidon was not the only sea god to be feared. Although he ruled over the sea after the titanomarchy, other gods still existed.
Same way Zeus was the god of the sky, other gods like Hera, Hermes, Aphrodite, Athena and a host of others still resided in Olympus. Same with the gods in the) Underworld..😳
Found this Dionysus meme😂
Dionysus loved driving men mad. And one thing I didn't add to the myth is that Dionysus lived for praises. He loved to be appreciated and loved. That is one of the reasons he was the only god to live among his worshipers😇.
