    Pegasus crochet


    Pegasus (Ancient Greek: Πήγασος, Pḗgasos; Latin: Pegasus, Pegasos) is
    one of the best known creatures in Greek mythology.
    He is a winged divine stallion also known as a horse usually depicted as pure white in color.
    He was sired by Poseidon, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa.
    He was the brother of Chrysaor, born at a single birthing
    when his mother was decapitated by Perseus.
    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.
    ИзображениеPegasus 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.
    Hypotheses have been proposed regarding its relationship with the Muses, the gods Athena, Poseidon, Zeus, Apollo, and the hero Perseus.
    The symbolism of Pegasus varies with time.
    Symbol of wisdom and especially of fame from the Middle Ages until the Renaissance, he became one symbol of the poetry and the creator of sources in which the poets come to draw inspiration, particularly in the 19th century.
    Pegasus is the subject of a very rich iconography, especially through the ancient Greek pottery and paintings and sculptures of the Renaissance.

    ИзображениеWedding Traditions & Folklore
    Many of today's popular wedding ceremony and reception traditions can be traced to ancient Egyptian and European customs. These were often based on symbolism, superstition, folklore, religion, and even the belief that evil spirits could bring disease and death to newlyweds and crops, which was very important in many farm-based early cultures. Although the exact origin and usefulness of many of these early wedding traditions are not always clear, popular acceptance has allowed them to flourish. Besides, many of these wedding traditions are just plain fun!
    ИзображениеAccording to various sources, some of the early marriages were literally carried out by the Groom and his "Bridesmen" (or "Bridesknights") who would kidnap a woman (the origin of "carrying a Bride over the threshold") from another tribe! The Groom and his fellow conspirators would then fight off the female's family of tribesmen with swords held in their right hand while the Groom would hold the captured Bride in his left hand, which is the origin of why a Bride stands on the left side of the Groom at a wedding.
    ИзображениеAfter a successful capture, another politically correct practice was for the Groom to hide his new Bride for one month for mating purposes. It is said that the word "honeymoon" was created to describe this one month cycle of the moon when they would drink mead, which was a honey sweetened alcoholic brew that effects both sobriety and the acidity of the womb, thus increasing fertility.
    Beginning around 1000 A.D., marriages were often nothing more than trading chips used in bartering land, social status, political alliances, or money (no checks or credit cards were accepted) between families!
    The word, "Wedding" comes from the Anglo-Saxon word "wedd" that meant a man would marry a woman and pay the Bride's father.

    Many species of frog care for their offspring. For example some poison dart frogs lay their eggs on the forest floor so they can guard them and urinate on them to keep them moist.

    • Many species of frog care for their offspring. For example some poison dart frogs lay their eggs on the forest floor so they can guard them and urinate on them to keep them moist.
    • Females of some frog species keep a regular check on their offspring (tadpoles) and if food becomes scarce she will deposit unfertilised eggs for them to eat.
    • Asian tree frogs build nests in trees above water so that when the tadpoles hatch they fall directly into the water.
    • Due to their permeable skin, typically biphastic life (aquatic larvae and terrestrial adults), and mid-position in the food web frogs and other amphibians are excellent biological indicators of the wider health of ecosystems.
    • Since Pictish times, the frog has been considered lucky in Scotland. This is why stone frogs are commonly kept in gardens and often given as housewarming gifts.
    • In Egypt the frog is the symbol of life and fertility, and in Egyptian mythology Heget is a frog-goddess who represents fertility

    ИзображениеTweety, also known as Tweety Pie and Tweety Bird, is a yellow canary in the Looney Tunes series. Tweety Bird appeared in 42 cartoons in the Golden Age.
    Tweety made his first appearance in 1942 in a cartoon entitled A Tale Of Two Kitties, directed by Bob Clampett, but was not paired with Sylvester The Cat until five years later. The 1947 cartoon Tweetie Pie pitted them against each other for the first time. The cartoon, which won an Academy Award, was the start of many short cartoons to come.
    ИзображениеTweety appears to be an innocent little bird. Although he seems naïve, he is clever enough to constantly outsmart Sylvester the cat. He is a yellow canary that has a somewhat large head. His temper was at first short, and was often angry. As his character progressed, he became more calmer. In A Tale Of Two Kitties, Tweety's speech is strange, as he mispronounces many words, such as "pussy cat" (which he says as "puddy tat"). Tweety's name was originally Orson, but this was soon changed, as his current name was already presented in his second cartoon, Birdy and the Beast(1944). Tweety had initially been portrayed simply as a (wild) birdling whose species had not yet been specified, and was shown to reside in an outdoor nest high in a tree. After those several portrayals, it was only till 1947 when he had his first domestic role and his first human interaction in Tweetie Pie, of which would become the most noted portrayal of the character (However even then, he would still be shown residing in an outdoor nest in later shorts). Tweety lives in a birdcage located in Granny's house. Granny is overprotective of Tweety and keeps Sylvester away from her prized bird.
