Limited Edition 299 Pcs – Aphrodite Glass Sculpture
She was syncretized with the Roman goddess Venus. Aphrodite’s major symbols include myrtles, roses, doves, sparrows, and swans. The cult of Aphrodite was largely derived from that of the Phoenician goddess Astarte, a cognate of the East Semitic goddess Ishtar, whose cult was based on the Sumerian cult of Inanna. Aphrodite’s main cult centres were Cythera, Cyprus, Corinth, and Athens. Her main festival was the Aphrodisia, which was celebrated annually in midsummer. In Laconia, Aphrodite was worshipped as a warrior goddess. She was also the patron goddess of prostitutes, an association which led early scholars to propose the concept of “sacred prostitution” in Greco-Roman culture, an idea which is now generally seen as erroneous.
Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, emerged into existence from the milky white foam that arose from the severed genitals of Uranus, cast into the sea by his son Cronus. This mythical origin story has played a significant role in the cult of Aphrodite, as devotees associate her birth with the transformative power of love and desire. Through her divine presence, Aphrodite has continued to captivate and inspire worshippers throughout the ages.
