Echidna - Mother of all Monsters by dsilvabarred Echidna - Mother of all Monsters by dsilvabarred
Echinda, Mother of all monsters-

"the goddess fierce Echidna who is half a nymph with glancing eyes and fair cheeks, and half again a huge snake, great and awful, with speckled skin, eating raw flesh beneath the secret parts of the holy earth. And there she has a cave deep down under a hollow rock far from the deathless gods and mortal men. There, then, did the gods appoint her a glorious house to dwell in: and she keeps guard in Arima beneath the earth, grim Echidna, a nymph who dies not nor grows old all her days."

Echidna, Lamia, Naga......no matter what you call her, the half serpent, half woman has been around in the mythology of many cultures throughout time . In Greek mythology her name was Echidna & she gave birth to the most hideous creatures in greek mythology such as Cerberus , the guardian of the gates of hades , the Chimera & the Hydra . I decided to make my version of Echidna sweet & sultry looking because of the fact that she is a nymph & lures her victims into her cave where she devours them!
