Last – Friday Foto Fun: Mythical

For this weeks Friday Foto Fun we have been asked:

Please share are mythical photo, poem or story?

While actually a real historical person and not a ‘mythic’ character, I decided to use this photo of the statue of ‘Llywelln ap Gruffudd’ taken on our recent trip through Llandovery, it was created by sculptors Toby and Gideon Petersen and has stood on the castle mound above the town since 2001, the 600th anniversary of his death.

While a real person there are obviously many myths that surround him, and he has of course featured in several historical fictional novels.
