Detalles del producto
Conway begins with an introduction to the concept of mythical beasts, and a general overview of working with them. The book is then divided into sections for each type of creature, as follows: Unicorns, Flying Horses, Centaurs, Satyrs and Fauns, Gigantic Birds, Human-Birds, Griffins, Mystical Bulls, Fabulous Lions, Magickal Serpents, Sphinxes, Hell Hounds, Water-folk, Creatures of the Stony Stare, Gargoyles, and other creatures. Each chapter has many different types of creatures that fall under that heading, such as Woodwose under "Centaurs", and Nixies under "water-folk". For each creature a description, area, origin, and folklore are given, followed by psychological attributes and magickal attributes. The many illustrations are delightful and detailed. The final part of the book deals with working with magick, and covers candle burning, amulets and talismans, and rituals. These chapters are brief, but Conway gets right to the point.
In the "Rituals" section, she offers three different quarter calls and dismissals, for the Archangels, Lords and Ladies, and the Elemental Kings.A wonderful book that anyone interesting in magick or mystical beasts can enjoy greatly. Even if you are not into magick or paganism, you can still delight in reading about the folklore and legends about these magickal mythical mystical beasts.
