This book, illustrated by artistic paintings, conjures up the mysterious world of imaginary and real creatures, gods and goddesses, and people. While the compelling adventures of Prometheus, Heracles, Icarus, Thor, Gargantua and other well-known heroes and heroines come to life, the marvellous power of eternal human virtues and ideals that can decide events, such as perseverance, courage, a thirst for knowledge, belief and love, can be felt. Most of the stories selected relate episodes connected with Greek myths and Biblical events, which form an important part of our cultural heritage, but there are appetisers from Egyptian, Roman, Germanic, Celtic and Gaelic legends as well. Some illustrations of scenes from the 25 famous stories offer an unforgettable experience thanks to the use of a 3D technique.
