Mythic Creatures & Legendary Beasts/ $20 voucher

This challenge closed over 4 years ago.

The Challenge

This challenge is for all and any legendary critturs from mythology.

The choices are diverse. History from every quarter of the world is populated by a vast array of legendary creatures… from the Harpies and Gorgons of Greece to the Chinese Bashe (monster-snakes) ~ ~ from the Jorogumo (spider woman) of Japan to the more familiar griffons, dragons, mermaids, unicorns and minotaurs we know through European art and literature.

All entries must be blends, featuring the legendary creature of your choice.Please tell us what the creature is and where the story comes from in your title and/or text!

No shirt designs, no i-phone covers please! And keep your entries “real” (ie., based on actual legends out of history; nothing just made up, nothing from the modern media)
