Chimera relief

The creature as seen in the castle.

The Chimera was a creature of significance to the isolated Spanish castellany watched over by the Salazar family.

Description

The Chimera is a creature from Greek and Etruscan mythology. While its appearance varied based on the artist's ideas, it would usually appear as having the head and body of a lion, the tail of a snake, and the head of a ram reaching out from the spine.

The Castle itself had a large relief showing the sacred beast about to be killed by a man on horseback. The scene is analogous to the Greek tale of Bellerophon's slaying of the Chimera, though Pegasus has been replaced with an ordinary horse.
