An exciting collection of projects, including a griffin, centaur, sea serpent, wyvern, and 12 animals from the Chinese zodiac: rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, snake, monkey, and 6 others.
Along with the more "common" mythological beings, like the dragon and sea-serpent, there are also more "exotic" subjects, such as the chimera, Cerberus, and a 3 headed dragon! With every one comes a description about the creature.
Also included, are 11 "real life" animals (plus a Chinese Dragon) representing the 12 years of the Chinese Zodiac. For every one of those models, full information about the beliefs associated with those born in the year of this animal are noted, as well as the Chinese and Japanese writing and pronunciation of the animal's name.
