GREEK MYTHOLOGY 💠
The giant son of the god Poseidon. Polyphemus, who had only one eye on his forehead. According to myth, Odysseus arrived at the island of Sicily, while trying to go back to his homeland, Ithaca. There, he and his men went into a cave that was full of food. Polyphemus, who dwelled in the cave, returned and sealed the entrance. When he saw the men, he ate two. Odysseus gave him a wine to drink. He drank and demanded more, and after drinking that, Polyphemus asked Odysseus his name. He convinced Polyphemus that he is called “Nobody.”
Polyphemus told Odysseus that he would eat “Nobody” last to show his gratitude for the drink. He then fell into a deep sleep. Odysseus drove a wood into the giant’s eye and it blinded him instantly. Polyphemus began to scream, begging the other giants on the island to help him. As they arrived, he told them that “Nobody” had done this to him. This saved Odysseus, who eventually escaped the cave. The other giants assumed that a god had attacked Polyphemus and told him to pray for help from Poseidon, his father, as they couldn’t interfere.
HISTORICAL MONUMENTS 💠
The Great Wall Of China:
The history of the Great Wall is said to have started from the Spring and Autumn Period (770 – 476 BC). Over the following 2,000 years, more than 20 states and dynasties played a part in its construction. The accumulative length of the wall exceeds 13,170.70 miles (21,196.18 km). In time, the Great Wall gradually ceased to function as a military defensive system and many sections are severely damaged or disappearing due to natural disasters and human activity. However, it is a precious heritage of all mankind, and a witness to Chinese history that deserves better preservation and protection.
