The Roc

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

an acryllic paitinging for Bifrost 'World Mythology' project. The Roc was a bird in middle eastern mythology that was so large it could eat elphants, which it carried off in massive talons. ( -- and more information thanks to Athell -- ) what is interesting is that apparently the Roc was a VERY bad omen for some, because if it flew over a certain nation or empire or kingdom, it was an omen that the kingdom would collapse, a revolution would occur to overthrow the monarchy, or war would happen...and apparently, the Roc's longevity was based on consuming human flesh from battlefields.
