The description of chimera wallpaper
merely seeing the chimera was a bad omen. late classical writers believed the creature was a metaphor for a lycian volcano. it was a bizarre fire-breathing or fire breath creature with the body and head of a lion, a goat's head rising from its back, the udders of a goat, and a serpent for a tail, what a scary heads tails. he rode into battle on the back of the winged horse pegasos and drove a lead-tipped lance into its flaming throat, choking the beast on molten metal. the hero bellerophon was commanded by king iobates to slay the beast. the khimaira or chimera was a three-headed monster which ravaged the countryside of lykia lycia in anatolia. the greek monster regularly appeared before disasters such as shipwrecks, violent storms, and volcanic eruptions.
in later medieval usage, the word was used to describe any hybrid monster combination, and had a deep connection to the evil and demonic. this is a clear nod to the greek monster, in that the monster itself is a combination of three different normal animals. the use of the word chimera as a way of describing a hybrid monster of sorts seems to be the most lasting element of the chimera mythology. beyond mythology, the term chimera is used in scientific research to explain an animal that contains more than one set of genetic codings.
