Bellerophon fights the Chimera by suburbanbeatnik Bellerophon fights the Chimera by suburbanbeatnik
This is the spread for pgs 18-19 in Compass Media's "Bellerophon and Pegasus."

Bellerophon fights the Chimera. See, flying horses were originally intended for fighting monsters, not for princessy joyrides.

Usually Bellerophon is depicted with a spear, but he has a bow and arrow here. It makes sense to me, but I think most ancient stories/vases used a spear because the Greeks thought poorly of the bow and arrow-- it was for boys and Persians, not proper Hellenes.

Exceptional. Even the blue strokes of the sky radiating out from around the chimaera are amazing.
