In my work I want to determine the meaning and meaning of the images of mythological creatures in the context of Middle Ages culture. What did the medieval people want to say, depicting diverse creatures in books, on canvases, in ornaments of temples, houses, bestiary? The role of zoomorphic elements in the art of the Middle Ages is extremely great. I divided my visual study into three parts: Semi-people, Hybrids and Demons. The first two parts tell about fictional, fantastic creatures that do not have a religious background. Images of animals were used, as allegorical symbols, which operated with the concepts of morality and morality. And these characters can be read as text. Fantastic creatures were made up of several parts of different animals, engaged in "crossing". And each part has its own meaning. Parts that are integrated into a whole have a different meaning, rather than separately. The first part of "Semi-people" is divided into chapters: centaurs, mermaids, manticore. The third part tells about the religious images of beings, both divine and demonic. Very often in different religions, animals are used as a sacred incarnation of the gods. People gave their rulers not only the qualities of animals, but also parts of their bodies. Biblical creatures are divided into gods and demons (the same gods, but fallen from heaven). The divine creatures associated with birds are contrasted with the demonic, more mundane. In the Middle Ages often engaged in semiotics, that is, the union of different parts into one. Thus, medieval people depicted the devil using body parts of different animals. Thus, in my research, I would like to see how different are the ideas about fictional creatures of different authors. How different people perceived the reality in which they existed differently.
