Additional Product Information

The Greek Homer and the Roman Ovid both mention Scylla in their great works. Her origin is debated, but she was known to reside at the edge of a narrow strait through which sailors needed to pass traveling the Mediterranean Sea. On the other side of the strait lived the equally dangerous Charybdis. The saying Between Scylla and Charybdis would be much the same (although far more frightening) as the saying between a rock and a hard place. The Strait of Messina between Italy and Sicily is a mere two miles wide where it passes the Rock of Scylla. The narrow passage is known for rocks and whirlpools, and it was greatly feared by sailors of old. Even today, the narrow strait commands the respect of seafarers, not least because the legends of the terrifying Scylla live on.

Immortal and irresistible, the terrifying Scylla was part monster, part beauty. On Odysseus' voyage home from the battle of Troy, he was forced to sail through the narrow strait between Scylla and the equally dangerous Charybdis.

It was a terrible risk, but risk it Odysseus did, aiming for the center of the strait, hoping to pass undetected between the cave of the hungry Scylla and the whirlpool of ship-clutching Charybdis.

Brave though Odysseus' attempt was, his men suffered for it. The watchful Scylla plucked six men from the ship, pulling them, armor and all, into her cave. Odysseus grieved the loss of his men, but sailed on to avoid further losses.

- Realistic, educational, and fun, this figurine is suitable for a range of interests, including collectors, enthusiasts, teachers, and kids. Admire it on a shelf, use it in the classroom, or simply enjoy playing with it.

- Item Size: H: 4.000 x W: 4.200 x L: 4.900.
