The Legend Of The Kraken
Transcript of The Legend Of The Kraken
The Ledgend Of The Kraken
The Kraken is also connected to a norwegian and greenlandic culture and legend because the first sightings were in on the coast of greenland. A lot of ships were sinking and the crew never returning because of coastal storms and raging waters causing even the best sailors to drown. Instead of using observation, the norwegians just assumed that a gigantic octo-humaniod was breaking the ships in half and devouring the sailors.
Believe me know?
From: Norway and Greenland
How: Two men spot massive sea monsters in greenland sea.
When: 13th century
Symbolizes: I think they norwegians used this as an excuse for rough seas and storms that caused ships to sink.
“ A lot of ships were sinking and the crew never returning because of coastal storms and raging waters bringing even the best sailors down [to drown]." Instead of using observation, the norwegians just assumed that a gigantic octo-humaniod was breaking the ships in half and devouring the sailors.
Throughout the years the Kraken has been seen in the movie Clash of Titans (1981) and a (2015) Geico television commercial . The website wikipedia states, “ “An interpretation of the Kraken appears in the film Clash of the Titans (1981) …”. The same website also ,” states A 2015 GEICO television commercial features a Kraken coming out of a water hazard…”. This states that the Kraken has been somewhat popular because of its habitat. We believe that through out the years the Kraken will become more and more popular!
This mythical creature is connected to Norway and Green land. It is connected because of the word Kraken which is from Norway and to Greenland because in research I have made it said that many of the sightings of this creature were seen in the seas of Greenland. The website https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kraken, states, "“The English word Kraken is taken from Norwegian. In Norwegian and Swedish, Kraken is the definite form of krake, a word designating an unhealthy animal or something twisted (cognate with the English crook and crank)” . This explains the meaning of the word Kraken in Norwegian culture and it helps us understand the idea of why they named the Kraken, 'Kraken'.
This is how they look:
(For visual comparison).
-Has the form of a octopus.
-Has huge tentacles
-Grows up to 40-50 meters.(HUGE!!)
Or about as big as a mountain or 15 ships
-usually the color of the water it dwells in.
This creature is very similar to the scylla, another surf homed mythical creature with tentacles and a bad temper. Though the scylla has 6 heads and many horns the scylla is closely related to the kraken.
According to the website, unmeuseum-Kraken , "
Tales of a huge, many armed, headed or horned sea creatures exist from ancient times. The Greek legend of the Scylla, a monster with six heads ...
.” This is an example of a mythical creature which is compared to the Kraken because both mythical creatures are said to live in the water.
