Legend of Centaur
Centaur garden statue is a statue half horse body and half man bosy. Centaur, also known as horse with human head, originated from Greek mythology and legend. In ancient Greece, there was a kingdom called Thessaria, whose king was Ixion (born of Ares, the God of war, and a woman). Because of his blood relationship with God, he boldly fell in love with the queen Hera and pursued her. In order to avoid Ixion’s pursuit, Hera changed herself into a cloud. Ixion threw himself into this auspicious cloud regardless of everything. As a result, a monster was born in this auspicious cloud: the upper half of the monster was a person, with a head, eyes, nose, ears, mouth, arms and hands, while the lower half was a horse, with four legs and a horse tail.
Centaurs are generally described as rude, violent and unreasonable. In general, they are regarded as representatives of barbarism and are associated with alcoholism, violence and pornography, but there are a few exceptions. In Greek mythology, some well-known centaurs are very knowledgeable and educated, such as Chilon, the teacher of many great heroes. Such centaurs (especially Chilon) are often called “horse man” in Chinese.
The representative constellations of Centaurus in the sky are Centaurus and Sagittarius.
