Greek Mythology

How has Greek Mythology affected our culture

Greek architecture

Greek architecture has affected how we designee so many buildings today. They made the buildings beautiful for their gods, which many churches use their pillar to make their worshiping place beautiful. As below I compare the pillars of some greek ruins to the pillars of the the Romans that took over Greece , and ¨First Lutheran Church¨. Which the pillars from the FLC looked like they were based on the greek pillars. Some greek architecture is used in buildings today Mrs.Raisbeck states, ¨some are the white house, the Smithsonian Museum in DC, and even in our Stoughton library.

Greek God influences

There are many influences from sports teams to beauty sprays

Nike

Nike is one of the most popular shoe brands, and is based off of the greek goddess Nike! The goddess Nike was the greek goddess of victory. Which I think means that their shoes will help you get the victory.
