Step into a world of enchantment and wonder, where mythical creatures come to life in the strokes of a brush and the pages of ancient tales. From Sakata Kintoki wrestling with a Tengu, an otherworldly creature believed to possess supernatural powers, to The Temptation of Saint Anthony, where fantastical beings test the limits of faith. In "The Unicorn is Killed and Brought to the Castle, " we witness a scene that blurs reality and fantasy as this majestic creature meets its tragic fate. Its woolen tapestry immortalizes its beauty for generations to come. Meanwhile, Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream transports us deep into an enchanted forest inhabited by mischievous fairies and love-struck mortals. The allure of mermaids has captivated sailors' imaginations for centuries, as depicted in "Mermaid. " This oil painting captures their ethereal charm amidst crashing waves. Max Klinger's "Bear and Elf" takes us on a whimsical journey through German folklore, showcasing unlikely companions in an enchanting woodland setting. Travel back in time with Le Premier Volume de la bible en francoiz historiee et nouvellement imprimee - one of the earliest printed bibles adorned with intricate illustrations depicting biblical scenes intertwined with mythical creatures. Radnor House's Grottesche decoration showcases elaborate designs inspired by classical mythology within England's lost houses. Mythology often intertwines romance and danger; "The abduction of Amymone by the sea monster" illustrates this perfectly as it portrays a maiden caught between perilous jaws while Perseus bravely battles monstrous beasts in his quest to save Andromeda. Saint George emerges as both hero and slayer in two distinct depictions: one captured through engraving ("Saint George and the death dragon") exuding strength against evil forces; another portrayed vividly through handwritten artistry ("Saint George and the Dragon"), revealing devotion preserved through the ages.
