There are countless mythical creatures that have played a role in the stories passed down through the generations. Many of these fantastical creatures entered into the fabric of human history as a means of explaining certain natural phenomena or as a way to classify an unusual animal. Ancient peoples and their imaginations brought to life a number of beasts, known to torment them both on land and at sea. The 8 oz Silver Antique Finish Hydra Statue depicts just one of these creatures. In Greek mythology, the hydra was said to be a serpent-like beast, with many heads. This statue contains 8 Troy oz of actual silver.
The 8 oz Silver Antique Finish Hydra Statue was designed by one of the most prolific HotCo artists, Cosmin Morar. Morar is known for being both a sculptor and CD/3D character artist. He is responsible for designing many of the charming silver statues released by Heads or Tails Coin Company.
The hydra is a mythical beast hailing from the ancient Greek and Roman history and mythology. Takes about the hydra can vary greatly, based upon the source and across both the Greek and Roman mythology. Some stated that the hydra had three or four heads, while others told tales of the hydras regenerative abilities. It is said that for every head that was cut off of the hydra, two or more would grow back in its place.
Your 8 oz Silver Antique Finish Hydra Statue depicts the beast as a three-headed sea serpent. This imagery of the hydra is inspired by the most commonly depicted visions of this mythical sea creature. The hydra is said to have protected the entrance to the Underworld. The entrance to the Underworld was said to have been located inside of the hydras lair in the lake known as Lerna.
Each of the 8 oz Silver Antique Finish Hydra Statues features the proprietary HotCo antique finish polish. The Heads or Tails Coin Company antique polish adds an ancient look to each of the statues. The antique finish also brings to life some of the statues finer details.
