Mortals believe that the gods are born as they are, and have clothes and speech and bodies like theirs…But if cattle and horses had hands, and could draw and create works of art like men do, horses would draw pictures of gods like horses, and cattle of gods like cattle, and make the bodies of their gods in the image of their own kinds…The Ethiopians make their gods black and snub-nosed, and the Thracians have gods with blue eyes and red hair.
