-Myth Dic- +Amazonas+ Picture

AMAZONAS

De origen griego, las Amazonas eran un pueblo formado por mujeres guerreras, hijas del dios de la guerra Ares, y que rechazaban a los hombres salvo para procrear. Unicamente se quedaban con las niñas, ya que cuando nacian niños los mataban o abandonaban. Las Amazonas representaban "el mundo al revés" para los griegos antiguos, ya que las mujeres carecían de peso social y se dedicaban solo a criar a sus hijos y a las labores de la casa.
Eran gobernadas por una reina, que en los mitos en los que aparecen siempre solían acabar muertas a manos del héroe del mito, quien momentos antes de su muerte caía enamorado de ella.
Hay una creencia de que las Amazonas se cortaban un pecho para poder usar mejor el arco, pero es falsa porque en todas las representaciones aparecen con ambos pechos.

They came from the greek mythology, a village of warrior women, Ares` daughters, the war god. They repel men, except when they wanted to procreate. Amazons only wanted girls, and with the born boys they used to kill them or to abandon their. Amazons looked like the "reverse world" because in the ancient Greece women weren´t cityzen, they only took care of their children and did the housework.
They had a queen, who in the myths were they appear usually was killed by the hero from the myth, but before her death, the hero used to fell in love with her.
There is the belief that the amazons cut one of their breasts in order to can use better the arch, but it´s false because in all their representations they appear with their both breasts.
