Greek Mythology - Chimera Picture

The next myth I chose to do is the Chimera, a Greek myth.

This beast is a cross between a lions head, a goats body, and a serpents tail, it is also said to be a she-monster but I have yet to see an art piece showing it to be female. It breathes fire and is the offspring of Echinda and Typhon. Its siblings are Cerberus, Sphinx, and Orthrus, and it resides in southwest Turkey, of Lycia. The stories say that it terrorizes towns by burning them down to ash.
