Mythology Project - Mel Picture

Third in the series: Mel

Mel is of African and Czech descent(yes I know it's odd)

She is depicted as an Abada, a creature of African myth similar to a unicorn, except with two somewhat crooked horns. It's about the size of a donkey and can have the tail of a boar. Its horns can act as an antidote to poison. ([link])

The little golem next to her is based off the legend of the golem of Prague. ([link])


Project Description
The mythology project is something I did for the concentration portion of my AP Art portfolio. Devil's Parliament is a story of cultural and personal diversity in an era of strict social barriers. Each of my characters is of uncommonly mixed races; and each has his or her own distinct personality. After some research, I decided to integrate creatures/figures from the mythology of each character's cultures into the characters themselves to portray not only their heritage but their own unique personas.
