In Greek mythology the Amazons were female warriors. Herodotus also called them "destroyers of men." They seem to have caused a lot of trouble - we find them on motifs in almost every important temple. They only went to meet males once a year, riding together as if going to battle, to a tribe of warriors called the lizard-eyed men. Some historians call them the Gargarians. The Amazons raised the female children, and gave the masculine ones to the lizard-eyed men. This inspired us to engage lizards in creating the Collection. Their queens Hippolyta and Pentisilea are daughters of the Amazon Queen Otrere and the God of War, Ares.
