Ancient Greek and Roman tales, with their themes of love and loss, hardship and reward, adventure and transformation, were some of the major sculpture subjects in Europe. The Gods are immortal and have the ability to magically move from one location to another in the realm of Greek mythology. Both the animals and the tales were more than just stories; they were real creatures. In the classical era, which lasted from around the fifth century BC in ancient Greece to the later Roman Empire, mythological Gods and Goddesses were still actively worshipped. The myths themselves still played a significant role in religious rites. They were not only spoken aloud on specific solemn dates, but their lives also had many similarities to those of humans.

Hence this paper tries to identify the unique characteristics of myths, legends and folklores and evaluate the significance of Classical Mythology.
