Pegasus – the winged stallion, pure white in color - is easily one of the most recognizable characters of ancient Greek mythology.

According to myth, he is Poseidon's son, and his birth was a spectacular, action-packed event. For a while he belonged to the mortal Bellerophon, whom he helped to defeat the deadly fire-breathing chimera.

Later he pulled Zeus' chariot of thunderbolts and Zeus rewarded him with immortality by transforming him into the constellation that still bears his name.

Pegasus has been a symbol of wisdom, fame and great imagination, and he has also come to be known as the fountain of inspiration for poets.
