Gaia, the goddess of the Earth in Greek mythology, a mother of the titans, handmade wooden statue carving from ecological material.
Material: ecological ash tree. Сoating: varnish. Height 7.8inch/20cm. Width 3.1inch/8cm. Depth 1.7inch/4.5cm.
She was revered from ancient times as a gоddеss who gives birth to all life from her depths and nourishes it with her breast, the keeper of wisdom and advisor to the inhabitants of Olympus has become one of the pioneers in cosmogonic myths.
The first child, produced by the heroine, was Uranus, personifying the world of the starry sky. Subsequently, it also became a haven for the majestic Olympians. He was destined to cover the Earth, sprinkle the soil with fertile rain, and become the spouse of Gаіа.
But already the first generation of heirs made Uranus afraid. These creatures were as tall as mountains, physically strong and outwardly ugly. Each of the three born Hecatoncheires had 100 arms and 50 heads. The sky was afraid that the descendants were a threat to power, and hastened to imprison the monsters in Tartarus.
It was hard for her to keep monsters in her gut, but she decided not to go against her husband's will. The next children born also did not cause positive emotions in the father. The terrifying Cyclops shared the fate of the firstborn.
However, the titans (6 sons and 6 daughters), according to Uranus, should have been imprisoned in the dungeon forever. The mother could no longer put up with the fact that her children were burdened in Tartarus because this brought her physical suffering.
Then she began to persuade the titans to rebel against her father and to overthrow him from the pedestal of the sovereign. Kronos responded to the request, trapped the parent, and emasculated him with a sickle. Deprived of male power, the hero shed blood - so the terrible and vengeful Erinians were born. And the seed that got into the ocean gave life to the most beautiful Aphrodite.
After the overthrow of her husband, the mother continued childbearing. The overthrow of Uranus gave rise to the tradition of power change and parricide.
Gradually, Gаіа's influence began to diminish. Her main role was focused on giving wise advice.
The Grееk mоthеr earth was not very human towards others. And it's not only about humanity or kindness but also about the manipulative influence on children.
By persuading Kronos to oppose her father, she initiated the usurpation of power. Subsequently, this line of behavior pursued the Olympians, and the mothers showed passive-aggressive character traits, acted covertly, inciting descendants to rebellion.
Her position was to support wоmеп-mоthеrs.
We tried to do it for you with great pleasure and put effort into this wооden sсuІрturе from ash tree for your complete delight.
