Have you ever seen any animals that are half-human and half-horse? In real life we can not see this kind of animal, this image of the animal can only exist in fairy tales. But now is your chance to meet this animal. Take a look at the statue of Centaur Pompeii. Centaurs are the upper and lower halves of human beings in Greek mythology. The body and legs of a horse. In many Greek myths, centaurs are thought to be as wild as wild horses, and they are said to reside in the Magnesia and Pilion mountain regions of Thessaly, the Floy oak forest of Elis, and the Marin Peninsula south of Laconia. Centaurs later appeared in Roman mythology and were familiar figures in medieval animal fables. They remain a staple of modern fantasy literature.

The statue of Centaur Pompeii was created by Polish artist Igor Mitoraj as part of an exhibition at Pompeii. Pompeii is an Ancient Roman city that was buried under ash from the eruption of Mount Vesuvius nearly 2,000 years ago (AD 79). It is one of the most breathtaking historical sites in the world. Centaurs are generally believed to be born of Ixion and Nephele. Nephera, as the story goes, was a cloud made in the form of Hera in order to trick Ixion into revealing his desire for Hera to Zeus. Ixion seduces Nephele, and this relationship creates the centaur. However, another version makes them the children of centaurs, the people who mate with the Magician mare. Centaurs were either themselves the son of Ixion and Nephele, or of Apollo and The nymph Stilb. In a later version of the story, the centaur’s twin brother is Lapidus, the ancestor of the Lapids. If you are interested in Greek mythology, this statue of Centaur Pompeii is well worth collecting.
