Heroes, sagas and symbols

Read more.

Gods and heroes, stories of odysseys and allurement, of creation and the circle of life — these are the topics that can be found in the mythologies of all cultures. Many of these cultures no longer exist today, like ancient Greece, ancient Egypt or the empires of the Aztecs and Maya. However, their cultural myths continue to live on today — in art, language and even everyday life. Other cultures are still alive, for instance in India or Australia. 

This richly illustrated book offers a colourful insight into the world of mythology, divided into twelve chapters.
