While unicorns have been mentioned in cultures across the planet for centuries, variations abound in terms of its features and symbolism. Unicorns have been linked to antelopes, goats, deer and rhinoceroses, and their horns were said to possess magical powers. Breathtaking designs of popular mythological creatures based on the colorful stories of ancient Greek mythology. This collection has a realism unequal to none; even Pegasus appears to be flying! Newly released in 2008, these sculpts have already become hugely popular in the "collectors" market. Children will enjoy hours of imaginative play and learn about the Greek classics at the same time. Excellent 3-D compliment to any lesson plan or project.
