Erdbeerkörbchen - Strawberrybasket

In Greek mythology, Pegasus (Greek: Πήγασος, Pégasos, 'strong' ) was a winged horse sired by Poseidon, in his role as horse-god, and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa.

The poet Hesiod connects the name Pegasus with the word for "spring, well", pēgē; however, the name's origins may come from words in the Luwian language: pihassas, meaning "lightning"; or from Pihassasas, the name of an ancient weather god meaning "god of lightning". Everywhere the winged horse struck his hoof to the earth, an inspiring spring burst forth: one on the Muses' Mount Helicon, the Hippocrene ("horse spring"), at the behest of Poseidon to prevent the mountain swelling too much and another at Troezen.

Hesiod relates one story of how Pegasus was peacefully drinking from a well when the hero Bellerophon captured him using a golden bridle given to him by Athena. He also says Pegasus carried thunderbolts for Zeus.

Pegasus aided the hero Bellerophon in his fight against both the Chimera and the Amazons. There are varying tales as to how Bellerophon found Pegasus; the most common says that the hero was told by Polyeidos to sleep in the temple of Athena, where the goddess visited him in the night and presented him with a golden bridle.

i like this kind of art , a surreal work which is so mixed and so full of details but all in all yet so in special order of one or even more - many more - things and messages to share to pass on .
only for that i like this work and your way of art , as i saw in your gallery .

a broken , under construction Pegasus which reminds the Trojan horse as well , in a dried place - a desert of an old city ,
is making the things more interesting , more to think though , not just "another picture to pass on" .

very good work and very interesting ,
i like it very much :)
have a nice day ,
