Why Pegasus Series?
Pegasus, an immortal winged divine stallion, is one of the best-known creatures in Greek mythology. Winged horses like Pegasus have been used to symbolize freedom, power and victory in many cultures. Pegasus is said to have sprung from the head of Medusa, a mythical Gorgon sister with hair of snakes and a stare that could turn a man to stone. According to legend, everywhere the winged horse struck his hoof to the earth, an inspiring spring burst forth.
Our Pegasus knights in this set are inspired by the same Greek stallion. The mane of the knight depicts the folded wings of the Pegasus. The flared nostrils of the knight depict the Pegasus which has just landed on earth after a long flight.
