Monsters

Monsters have been part of human culture since the ancient times. They are manifestations of the fears and suspicions of society and they lurk throughout the world. The name monster is derived from the Latin root “monere” (to warn). The ominous creatures are often depicted as giants but others have more human qualities and may be transformational with supernatural powers like Vampires. The monsters amongst us may live in the sea, walk in earthly shadows and or fly. They are the legends of our nightmares.
