About This Quiz

Ancient peoples often wrote of goddesses shape-shifting into an array of creatures like swans, lionesses and wolves. For instance, according to Roman mythology, Metis, the wife of Zeus, could transform into anything she desired. In a shape-shifting duel with Zeus, she morphed into gigantic, feathered creatures, scaly, reptilian entities and even a tiny fly. Meanwhile, Native Hawaiians revered the deity Péle, the goddess of volcanoes, who could forge entire landscapes and likewise assume any form her heart desired.
