A lovely piece, decorated with geometric swirls, and hand painted with russet reds, dark blues and ochre browns. The decoration and colouring varies slightly on each one.
Pegasus, the mythical winged horse, whose name in Greek means 'strong', was the offspring of Poseidon and Medusa. After his birth, Pegasus flew to Mount Olympus where he placed himself at the disposal of Zeus, to whom he brought thunderbolts.
The hero Bellerophon was given Pegasus by either Athena or Poseidon; with his help, Bellerophon killed the fire-breathing Chimaera and defeated the Amazons. After Bellerophon's death, Pegasus returned to the gods. Eventually, Pegasus was changed into a constellation.
Our terracotta collection is made for us and hand-painted for us in Greece.
