Pegasus, the Flying Horse Illustration

the Flying Horse


Pegasus, the flying horse, was the son of Neptune, king of the ocean, and Medusa, a horrible monster with snakes for hair.

Yet the stories of Pegasus are wonderful and warm. Some tell how Pegasus carried wounded Greek soldier from battle.

Many people tried to kidnap this famous horse. Some succeeded. But the gods always intervened, always on the side of Pegasus, and always to the disadvantage of whomever had kidnapped him.

Ultimately, after many adventures, Pegasus became the thundering horse Jupiter rode in the stars.
