All cultures and civilizations before us feared the unknown or the unexpected, which is why they’ve all tried to explain strange or complex phenomenons to the best of their ability. Given their lack of knowledge at the time, they usually attributed what was happening to supernatural beings or divine forces. It is also why our ancestors had such a rich imagination when it came down to mythological beings, creatures that were supposed to be mighty and awesome.
Some of them have remained with us throughout the ages, accompanying us deep into the age of knowledge and technological advancement. The fact that we are able to disprove their existence to some extent doesn’t make them any less terrific or inspiring in any way. So let us remind ourselves of a few of these mythological creatures and what’s so special about them to begin with.
According to Irish legends, the Dullahan is a headless horseman who rides a black horse while carrying his head under his arm. He is also said to carry a human spine in his other hand, a spine which he uses as a whip. Terrifyingly enough as it is, he is also said to always smile in a creepy way while his eyes never stop moving around. Interestingly enough, whenever the Dullahan stops riding his horse it means that someone is about to die.
