The Stymphalian Birds
Hercules had to drive an enormous flock of birds which gathered at a lake near the town of Stymphalos. He had to use the krotala (noisemaking clappers) to make the birds fly away from the trees and then used his bow and arrows to shoot them down. In this task the arrows symbolize the person’s spiritual power and the krotala the wisdom and the knowledge. A person needs to find his way towards his wise soul.
