Chelone - Lady of Tortoises by FrothingLizard Chelone - Lady of Tortoises by FrothingLizard
[Btw. if you are going to fave, please leave a comment as for why, thanks.]

Chelone, Lady of tortoises;

"Once upon a time, the almighty Zeus, and his wife Hera was too be married.
They sent invitations out to every man, animal and living creature in the world.
Unfortunately, a nymph of Artemis did not want to attend to the wedding, Chelone was her name, she did not wish to leave her home that day.
The harsh words Chelone did reply on the invitation made Hera so furious that she and Zeus visited the nymph, and turned her into a tortoise for eternaty. The tortoise twas the symbol of silence, that way Chelone would never speak again, and would never leave her home."

... Do not anger the gods...

Well, needed a break from all my TMNT fanart :]
Well, because my scanner is crap, I had to photograph those bleedin' drawings, wich gives it a hell'a bad quality.
Anyhoo, my concentration SHOULD be on my gift for :icongoldenfox123187:, but my scanner doesn't work, and I REALLY want to give her a drawing with a proper quality.
so... As soon as my scaner works Foxxy.

Anyhoo; I love making up new characters, even though Chelone (the tortoise) actually is a very unknown character from the greek mythology.

Sooo...
I suppose
Zeus, Hera & Chelone is © Those very very disturbed perveted old men from the ancient greece :boogie:

Well I can follow you on that - But the main message in most epics and storys from the greek mythology says directlty 'do not anger the gods, cause if you do, you are screwed!'
I'm not saying it's a good morale, just the morale of the storys from the great ancient greece ;]
and thanks...

Very true! I also love Celtic myths too (even though the names are extremely hard to pronounce! LOL!). I like the Myth of Eros and Psyche. That was all romantic and sad.

I love myth in general, the norse has a big place in my heart as well, but that also a part of our history.
Anyhoo, haven't really read anything about Celtic myth.
And ay, I suppose we all have our favorite myth :boogie:
