World of Gods and Goddesses


    "World of Gods and Goddesses" collects together similar themes and stories which occur in myth and legend around the world. The lands of the dead, the kings of the gods and the many stories of creation and destruction are all covered in an engaging way. From the evil frost giant Imir, of Norse mythology, to a race between a chameleon and lizard to deliver a message from a Zulu god, this book is full of fascinating stories of people around the world and how they chose to make sense of the very different worlds around them. Its amazing full-colour artwork brings to life the astonishing tales of gods, humans and monsters, while illustrated artifacts show the original paintings, carvings and sculptures which served as the sources of our knowledge about these myths and legends. It features four full-colour booklets, each telling a unique story, and includes full glossary and index.
