  Mythological Victim   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
The wound motif of the mythological victim assumes many forms, ranging from the violently horrific portrayals of castration and dismemberment, as suffered by Osiris, to more subtle symbolic forms of death, such as induced sleep and the curse of blindness, both inflicted upon the Cyclops Polyphemus.
Occasionally the mythological victim will enter the realm of death directly in a form of underworld/otherworld or oceanic journey, like Odysseus, where the dividing line between death and life - as in the motif of the sleeping god - tends to become blurred.
In certain Mithraea, pumex stone was used to imitate the natural appearance of a cave, stars were painted on the ceiling, and the use of artificial light to replicate the heavenly bodies have all served to create the illusion of the celestial realm, according to Mithraic cosmology.

  Mythological Antecedents and Gods - Inner Work With Paul Chirumbolo
The mythological Hawaiians lived in the original androgynous state, a form in which man is united with that female part of himself.
Mnemosyne literally translates to mean "memory," and so these goddesses are the mythological remembrance of the soul's forgotten higher state, at the peak of which is found the very godhead, what in a more secular way some might say is the ever-present energy of the exploded stars.
The mythological antecedents and gods of gaiety posses a treasure trove of perception triggered by the concussion of a supernova of an inner kind, typifying the presence of a third gender with a very real and important role in the world.

 The Origin of April Fool's Day
The phrase "Sending a man from Pilate to Herod" (an old term for sending someone on a fool's errand) was often pointed to as proof of this origin theory.
Proserpina called out to her mother Ceres (the Goddess of grain and the harvest) for help, but Ceres, who could only hear the echo of her daughter's voice, searched in vain for Proserpina.
The fruitless search of Ceres for her daughter (commemmorated during the Roman festival of Cerealia) was believed by some to have been the mythological antecedent of the fool's errands popular on April 1st.

 Irish Mythological Cycle
The Irish Mythological Cycle are those stories which pretain to the settling of Ireland and the adventures of its gods, the Tuatha De Danann.
The Mythological cycle, however, was the last to take on shape, and as such betrays a much more "Dark Ages" atmostphere than Bronze age Ireland, the way that the Ulster Cycle does, or an almost Neolithic atmosphere, like the Fionn Cycle.
It is ironic that the setting of each cycle is inverse with its age, excepting the Cycle of the Kings and the Saints.

Mantegna and Raphael were among those who employed prints to circulate novel designs derived from their study of ancient art and literature, spreading enthusiasm for mythological subject matter throughout Europe.
In addition, mythological designs in other media, particularly frescoes and oil paintings, were recorded in prints that fueled the fascination with pagan antiquity into the early 1800s.
The preferred mythological themes of Italian printmakers, drawn from the works of Greek and Latin poets (especially Latin—hence the bias here toward the Roman names of the gods), were those that were relevant to everyday life.
