DetailsCyclops Mask _Designed by 3DCLOUD ( http://www.myminifactory.com/object/cyclop-mask-3d-print-halloween-costume-2931 ) _Comments written by designer :"Cyclops are often found in greek mythology as giants amongst men with a singular eye in the centre of their forehead. This primordial species can be terrifying due to their freakish nature and large, muscular builds. This mask would be a great costume changer to make any costume that little bit creepier. " _***A cyclops, in Greek mythology and later Roman mythology, was a member of a primordial race of giants, each with a single eye in the middle of his forehead.The name literally means "round-eyed" or "circle-eyed". Hesiod described three one-eyed Cyclopes, Brontes, Steropes and Arges the sons of Uranus and Gaia, brothers of the Titans, builders and craftsmen,] while the epic poet Homer described another group of mortal herdsmen Cyclopes. Other accounts were written by the playwright Euripides, poet Theocritus and Roman epic poet Virgil. In Hesiod's Theogony, Zeus releases three Cyclopes from the dark pit of Tartarus. They provide Zeus' thunderbolt, Hades' helmet of invisibility, and Poseidon's trident, and the gods use these weapons to defeat the Titans. In a famous episode of Homer's Odyssey, the hero Odysseus encounters the cyclops Polyphemus, the son of Poseidon and Thoosa (a nereid), who lives with his fellow Cyclopes in a distant country. The connection between the two groups has been debated in antiquity and by modern scholars. It is upon Homer's account that Euripides and Virgil based their accounts of the mythical creatures.
