The chimera, a mythical creature originating from ancient Greek mythology, was a fearsome beast with a composite body featuring elements of different animals. Typically described as having the body of a lion, the head of a goat rising from its back, and a serpent for a tail, the chimera symbolized monstrous and unnatural hybridity. The chimera was said to breathe fire, terrorizing the ancient kingdom of Lycia until it was ultimately defeated by the hero Bellerophon, aided by the winged horse Pegasus. The chimera's symbolism evolved over time, representing themes of chaos, conflict, and the clash of opposing forces. In modern usage, the term "chimera" often denotes any hybrid or fantastical creation, extending the legacy of this mythical creature beyond its ancient origins into literature, art, and contemporary culture.
