Week 10 Myth-Folklore Curation

1 min read

Here is my new post for Myth-Folklore ... 

NAMAZU. From the History of Geology blog, an article about Namazu: The Earthshaker by David Bressan. In Japanese mythology, Namazu is a giant catfish which causes earthquakes when he moves his tail.

 

ROCK OF PROMETHEUS. Also from Atlas Obscura is this piece about a cave in the Caucasus Mountains in Georgia where you can supposedly see the actual rock to which the Titan Prometheus was chained as punishment for stealing fire from Olympus.

 

CEMETERY SYMBOLISM. This graphic Guide to Cemetery Symbolism (graphic by Michelle Enemark, text by Allison C. Meier) turned up in Atlas Obscura.
