The Greek writer Homer gives the terrifying Chimera the abilities of all animals that made up the hybrid. It has the agility of a mountain goat, the power of a lion, and the cunning of a serpent. Taken together, this beast is the stuff myths are made of. However, the creature was far more popular in ancient artwork than in literature, with its likeness emblazoned on countless statues, pottery, and plates. Myths told of a nearly indestructible creature, at least until the hero Bellerophon appeared.
At 7 inches long from its serpent head to its snake tail, Chimera is a formidable figure. The scaly head of the serpent, the wild mane of the lion, and the textured fur of the goat all come together to make this hybrid one of the most unique figures out there.
