Xenophanes
Ethiopians say that their gods are snubnosed and black
Thracians that they are pale and red-haired.
Xenophanes quotes
Mortals deem that the gods are begotten as they are,
and have clothes like theirs, and voice and form.
Xenophanes
But if cattle and horses and lions had hands
or could paint with their hands and create works such as men do,
horses like horses and cattle like cattle
also would depict the gods' shapes and make their bodies
of such a sort as the form they themselves have.
