mythology.by is an open mix-project which is implemented in several areas. These areas unite modern art and historical-cultural heritage of Belarus.
In the project we use historical mythological characters from the old Eastern European fairy tales, legends and myths.
The mythological creatures are well described and have exact 2D graphical representation made on the basis of their physical descriptions. 2D graphics of these characters is made at the highly artistic level.
Belarusian mythology is included into Slavic family of mythologies. The mythology of Belarus is studied quite poorly, there is an obvious deficiency of objective written sources. The purpose of our project is promotion of Belarusian mythology, studying and dissemination of information about characters of mythology of Belarus.
Today about 500 mythological characters are known, about 150 of them are well described in various sources, for 100 characters there are graphics, 15 of them already have representation in the form of full-growth sculptures.
