This Hera Goddess Statue depicts Hera, the queen of the Olympian deities. She is a daughter of Cronus and
Rhea, and wife and sister of Zeus. Hera was mainly worshipped as a
goddess of marriage and birth. It is said that each year Hera`s
virginity returns by bathing in the well Canathus.
The children of Hera
Zeus are the smith-god Hephaestus, the goddess of youth Hebe, and the
god of war Ares. According to some sources, however, her children were
conceived without the help of a man, either by slapping her hand on the
ground or by eating lettuce: thus they were born, not out of love but
out of lust and hatred.
This Hera Goddess Statue can be used as a center piece for rituals and spells involving purification.
