Sacred Source -Aphrodite

Home Order

Aphrodite Patroness of marriage and natural growth.

Draped in the close-fitting chitron and long robe, she holds to her breast a dove or fruit or flower, all symbols of mating and fecundity. Aphrodite corresponds with Laxmi. This reproduction from the Museum of Lyon is an archaic Ionian image of the Goddess of Love which long pre-existed her more eroticized depictions at the hands of Roman or Renaissance masters. Note the ritually-braided hair the polos crown and the quiet authority of her eyes.
