Greek mythology is one of the most varied and intriguing in the world.
Perseus was one of the greatest heroes in Greece, the son of Zeus and Danae.
He is probably the most famous for riding the Pegasus and killing Medusa by looking at her in the reflection of his shield in order to behead her. Perseus had many adventures, and married the beautiful Andromeda after saving her from a monster. They went on to found one of the greatest cities in Greek history, Mycenae, and after their deaths the lovers were placed in the northern sky as the constellation Casseopeia.
Greece was one of the most masculine cultures in history, and images of Greek mythology indicate an intellectual man who is as strong as he is intelligent. The military might of Sparta combined with the philosophical pursuits of Athens signify a man educated in ancient history and the timelessness of the classics.
