30 Mythological Innovations

From Goddess Couture to Hedonistic Photography

— July 11, 2009 — Pop Culture
Many of us studied mythology, either in school or out of curiosity, and this slideshow of mythological innovations highlights the influence these ancient stories have had on popular culture.

From Greek goddess couture to hedonistic photo sets, it's clear that mythological influences reign supreme in the realms of fashion and art. Chocolates modeled after deities and skateboards created with built-in Greek sandals, however, prove that mythological influences also exist in other industries.

Implications - While you're looking through tis collection of mythological innovations, see how many of the collections feature references to myths that you've seen represented in movies, novels, or school. There's a good chance you'll be surprised at how many you remember.
