in ancient mythology, a centaur was a creature from greek mythology which was half-man and half-horse. these creatures represented barbarism and unbridled chaos and were frequently represented in greek architectural sculpture and pottery decoration. the horse head, arms and torso were human and joined at the waist to the body and legs of a horse. however, despite their bestial and lustful reputation, some centaurs were not unfavourably portrayed in myths unless they were under the effects of wine. perhaps then they are a cautionary metaphor for the dangers we all face if we should forget our civility and lose control of our faculties.

these mythical creatures may actually have had a basis in reality as there was a tradition in thessaly of hunting bulls on horseback and the very word centaur may have originally meant bull catcher. the father of the race of centaurs was centaurus, himself the offspring of ixion who had made love to hera, or more precisely, a cloud made by a jealous zeus to resemble hera. perhaps the horseman of thessaly were so skilled that they seemed at one with their horse and so the myth of a single creature was born. the centaurs were believed to live in the forests of thessaly, beyond the laws of man.
