We’ve all seen the classical depictions of mythological figures. However, what would some of those gods and goddesses look like if we didn’t have those images in mind? Who might they be?
Hephaestus – (Greek) Even the blacksmith of the gods has to modernize eventually!
Demeter – (Greek) The goddess of harvests and agriculture, offering the fruits of the earth’s labor.
This image already comes with a mythology. But I choose to believe the Panda guide doubles as Han-Xiangzi – (Chinese) Immortal flute player.
Rhiannon – (Celtic) Cursed to be a horse for a time, she eventually gained responsibility as death goddess as well.
Nike – (Greek) While we’re more used to seeing the goddess of victory in ivory halls, she might enjoy a walk in the forest sometimes too!
Guan-Yu (Chinese) An unusual god of war, this fellow is actually pretty peace loving. He even actively tries to avoid conflicts.
Selene – (Greek) The archetypal goddess of the moon. I’m not sure she could be anything else.
Ares – (Greek) This god of war is always upgrading, and more importantly, always ready.
Skadi – (Norse) A jotunn goddess, she’s not only associated with winter, but bowhunting and skiing!
Kuku-No-Chi – (Japanese) This god handles tree trunks. Not the leaves or any fruit – just the branches.
