UPDATE: I added three mythological creatures: The CENTAUR (thanks to a centaur's body from BRICK FORGE), Cerberus (actually from HARRY POTTER I just added food for him to eat) and the fabled SIREN. I am almost done with Mount Olympus waiting for a few pieces from LEGO. When it's done I will post! Note: Finished all the principle GODS & GODDESSES with the addition of MINERVA! Several "GODS & GODDESSES" Have been added! They are: APOLLO, BACCHUS, CERES, HERCULES, VENUS and VULCAN and I updated:DIANA, JUNO, MARS and MEDUSA. I have done a GROUP SHOT which I will update, find it as the last picture! I will be adding a CENTAUR and I already have done a SIREN! Be on the lookout for them! And there are a few surprises to come using them! Since I redone the WONDER WOMAN TEMPLE and had the JLA fighting the "gods", it came to me I had to keep my promise to create more "gods" and add "goddesses"! This is the result! I created MODs for all except MEDUSA she is the LEGO Collectible Minifigure BUT once I get another she will become a MOD as well! Also note JUNO's blouse will be different as well! This is my introduction. I am adding the GODS & GODDESSES in the TEMPLE and adding A MT. OLYMPUS set as well! To showcase my new minifugure designs! I chose the ROMAN PANTHEON since I am Italian and for your pleasure I included a description of each "god & goddess" (it's the teacher in me)! More of the teacher: the Romans also believed their gods lived in Olympus which they called in LATIN: Olimpi!
I will be doing different versions of NEPTUNE as well!
About this creation
CHART OF THE PRINCIPLE ROMAN GODS (and their descriptions)!
The god APOLLO riding his steed: PEGASUS!
The god BACCHUS god of Celebration and Merriment!!!
The Centaur a mythological creature half man and half horse! His name comes from the Greek "hippocentaur". They were featured in literary forms of Roman mythology. A painted terracotta centaur was found in the "Hero's tomb" at Lefkandi.
Cerberus the three headed dog guardian or "hellhound" that guards the gates of the Underworld, to prevent those who have crossed the river Styx from ever escaping.
The goddess CERES the goddess of the earth. Here she is seen spilling out her blood to get the foliage to grow at great speed!
This is a MOD of the Collectible Minifigures of CYCLOPS!
This is DIANA the goddess of the hunt!
This is what she first looked like before I completed the following changes:
Hercules a god or a demigod? He is known for his 12 labors and not well loved by JUNO!
This is JUNO the ROMAN name for the goddess HERA!
This was JUNO before the following changes I made:
JUPITER is the ROMAN name for ZEUS the head of the gods!
I made several changes before I posted this! When I did I noticed I made a color mistake with the green jewel it was supposed to be blue so I corrected it! Look below for the correction!
This is MARS the god of war the planet MARS is named after him because it appeared RED the color of anger!
He underwent plenty of changes to see them look below:
MEDUSA beware looking at her face!
This is the way LEGO saw MEDUSA as promised I gave her the following MOD based on the fact no man could avoid her beauty!
This is MERCURY!
He was one I got the way I saw him to be right from the start---no changes made!
MINERVA favored of Jupiter!
The Minotaur of the maze!
I gave him a MOD as well, different horns and a totally different torso and legs! And a new weapon in his hand!
NEPTUNE the god of the Seven Seas!
This was how he looked before I made the changes you'll see below!
PLUTO the god of the underworld the former planet in the outermost portion of the universe was named after him!
Like MERCURY I got PLUTO right - right from the start!
The first century Roman historian Pliny the Elder discounted Sirens as pure fable. But Leonardo da Vinci wrote of the Siren, "The siren sings so sweetly that she lulls the mariners to sleep; then she climbs upon the ships and kills the sleeping mariners."
The goddess VENUS whose beauty launched a million ships. She had all of beauty's secrets at her disposal and love potions as well. Here she is pouring a love potion from a lantern!
The god VULCAN the god of the forge he is credited for creating JUPITER's weapons and thunder bolts! He worked so long in the foundry his skin turned ashen!
All the GODS & GODDESSES together! You will get a sneak peak of the SIREN as well as my update of NEPTUNE if you look closely!
