Magic is Real: 14 Amazing Mythological Objects
Now here’s a mythological relic that most Western audiences are probably familiar with. Excalibur is the name of King Arthur’s legendary sword. The weapon was gifted to King Arthur by the Lady of the Lake, and aided him in battle with a mysterious power.
If you’re looking to get your hands on it though, you’re out of luck. Upon King Arthur’s death, the sword was returned to the Lady of the Lake to prevent it from falling into the wrong hands.
1. Pandora’s Box
Last but not least, we return to the texts of Greek mythology to explore the legendary mythological object that is Pandora’s Box. Pandora’s Box refers to a box that was gifted to Pandora (the first woman on Earth). Inside the box were all the evils of the world.
