“АРГИМПАСА, СКИФСКАЯ БОГИНЯ ЛЮБВИ”

Argimpasa (Artimpasa) is the Scythian goddess of love and fertility corresponding to the Greek Aphrodite. She lived in a cave in Crimea. In ancient art, she was depicted as a beautiful long-haired woman with snakes instead of legs. Argimpasa became Hercules’ wife, and the couple had three sons. The youngest of the three—strong enough to draw back the string of his father’s bow—was named Scyth. He sired a great people, the Scythians.

Аргимпаса (Артимпаса) — скифская богиня любви и плодородия, соответствовавшая греческой Афродите. Жила в пещере в Крыму. Изображалась красивой женщиной с длинными волосами со змеями вместо ног. Аргимпаса стала женой Геракла и родила ему трёх сыновей. Младшего — достаточно сильного, чтобы натянуть тетиву отцовского лука — звали Скиф. От него и пошёл великий народ.

Wow! Amazing work! Love it!


I was wondering if you could let me us this image for an Android game called "Kingdoms of Myth", it's turn based strategy game based on a fantasy World. You can find a little bit more info in this rough website made by my colleges lifeisinfinity.eu5.org/infinit… (Sorry for the bad English). Of course you will have full credits of your work and link to your webpage if you want :)


Lot of thanks for your time ;)


P.D: By the way we just created now a Facebook with more recent pictures: www.facebook.com/kingdomsofmyt…
