Bellerophon Fights The Chimaera
This spectacular baroque engraving is from Bernard Picart's Le Temple Des Muses.
The engraving was made in 1733, is from the first edition and is an original antique. It has captions in French, English, German, and Dutch.
It is in very good condition for its age.
In Greek mythology, Bellerophon is one of the greatest heroes and slayers of monsters. His greatest feat was killing the Chimera, a monster with a lion's head, goat's body, and serpent's tail. Its breath came out in terrible blasts of burning flame.
