Henrielle's Greece Unproject

4:14 PM Posted by Henrielle 9-05 , No comments



(Don't mind the creepy background music)

In order:


Python-Usually represented as a serpent, he presided over the Delphic oracle. Unfortunately he became enemies with the Olympian deity Apollos who ended up killing him and taking the oracle for himself.

Orthrus-A two-headed dog task with guarding a huge herd of red cattle, he was killed by Hercules who the kept all the cattle as proof of his victory

Ichthyocentaurs-These were a pair of centaurin sea-gods with upper body of a man, lower front of a horse, and the tail of a fish. They were set in the sky as the astronomical constellation Pisces.

Scylla-A monster that lived on one side of a narrow channel of water, opposite its counterpart Charybdis. The two sides of the strait were within an arrow’s range of each other  --- so close that sailors attempting to avoid Charybdis would pass too close to Scylla with disastrous results.

Typhon- Known as the “Father of All Monsters’, Typhon was believed to be the most deadly monster of Greek mythology. His human upper half supposedly reached as high as the stars, and his hands reached east and west. Instead of a human head, a hundred dragon heads erupted from his neck and shoulders.

Ophiotaurus-A creature that was part bull and part serpent. It’s entrails were said to grant the power to defeat the gods to whoever burned them.

Lamia-A beautiful queen of Libya who became a child-eating daemon. In the myth, she is a mistress of the god Zeus, causing Zeus’ jealous wife, Hera, to kill all of Lamia’s children(except for Scylla who is herself is cursed) and transform her into a monster that hunts and devours the children of others.

Graeae-Three sisters who shared one eye and one tooth among them. Not surprisingly they weren’t known for their beauty

Echidna-Half woman half snake, Echidna known as the “Mother of All Monsters” because most of the monsters in Greek mythology were her offspring.

Sphinx-With the haunches of a lion, the wings of a great bird, and the face of a woman, she is mythicised as treacherous and merciless. Those who cannot answer her riddle suffer a fate typical in such mythological stories, as they are killed and eaten by this ravenous monster.

Erinyes-Literally translated to the “the avengers” from Greeks, these were known as the female deities of vengeance.

Charybdis-The daughter of Poseidon and Gaia; Charybdis is a huge bladder of a creature whose face is all mouth and whose arms and legs are flippers.

Sirens-Dangerous and beautiful creatures, they were often portrayed as femme fatales who lured nearby sailors with their enchanting voices to shipwreck on the rocky coast of their island.

Pegasus- Offspring of Poseidon and Medusa, a winged stallion with a pure white color.

My Ancient Greece Un-project



My Part 2 of this project:

Yeah you see the end twice and it has bad lighting so... I have two hands and no one in my family wanted to help well, except my little sister which my mother did not allow to hold the camera, so enjoy. Also, the first "The end" was to have a "Maybe" afterwards but I skipped like 50 pages of it.

The Gift of Fire

Zeus and Prometheus

The first humans had troubles with the gods. The gods thought humans as toys, but some found the humans interesting. One of those gods who thought they were interesting was Prometheus. 

Zeus was one of the gods who thought of humans as toys, and was  angry at mankind. He was the one who decided that mankind would not get a very important tool, fire. Without fire, humans would probably not survive, since they would not be able to warm themselves up or cook with it.

 Prometheus felt sorry for his human friends, since fire could help them cook stuff and so he stole one of Zeus's lightening bolts and gave it to mankind. That's when man discovered fire.

When Zeus found out, he was extremely mad. He ordered Prometheus to be chained to a rock as a punishment for stealing his lightening bolt and for helping the humans.

After nearly 1000 years, Hercules finally released Prometheus from his chains.


Here is my stop motion video. (This video has an HD Option if you want)

My Stop Motion Project


Well, here's my stop motion after like 3 years, due to movie maker blowing up on me and not letting log in from my Youtube account from movie maker, so I made another account which strangely worked because my original didn't... Hope you enjoy.

Harry's Ancient Egypt Stop Motion

Here is my Ancient Egypt Stop Motion




Description:

According to a myth, Ra ruled on earth as Pharaoh until he became old and weary. The people had lost respect for him and no longer obeyed his laws and so Ra decided that they should be punished. He sent the Eye to teach them a lesson, but then had to get her drunk to prevent her from killing everyone. Once that happened, Ra decided it was time for him to leave the world and give his spot as king to Horus and travel across the sky on Nut’s back (Nut is a Ancient Egyptian goddess and is goddess of sky)

Legend of Osiris

Osiris and his wife, Isis, ruled over Egypt for many years. Set, his brother, grew jealous of his power. Thus, planned to kill Osiris by surprise. He chopped Osiris into 14 pieces and scattered them around Egypt. Isis knew she had to do something to help, so she went around Egypt with her sister and found all the pieces of Osiris. With her magic, she put all the pieces of Osiris back together; being the first mummification. Now, Osiris can rule forever in the afterlife.
