The myth of Pegasus and the chimera
Shielded from the gorgon's stone gaze, Perseus crept through Medusa's cave. When he reached her, he drew his sickle and brought it down on her neck. From Medusa's neck sprung two children. One was a giant wielding a golden sword; the other was the magnificent, winged horse, Pegasus. No bridle could contain him— until one fateful day. Iseult Gillespie details the myth of the hero Bellerophon. [Directed by Karina Forero, Lucy Animation Studio, narrated by Susan Zimmerman, music by Stephen LaRosa].
