Hera by redheaded-step-child Hera by redheaded-step-child
Hera, the Greek sky goddess who is the heavenly Queen of the Gods. As the wife of Zeus, the long-suffering Hera is the patron goddess of all women, particularly those who are married. Regal and proud, she does not let insults go lightly, and her wrath has been a driving force in numerous myths. her symbols include the diadem crown, the cuckoo (cuckoos are engraved into the pillars of the gazebo in which she sits), the throne, and the peacock.

I used an image from the lovely stock of *Lisajen-stock, and the original image can be found in the stock pack here:[link]

A beautiful portrayal of Hera. Honestly, I have always pitied Hera and never judged her on her jealousy and wrath. Any wife would be upset if their husband behaved as Zeus did. I love the color of her dress and the emotional look in her eyes. A very nice piece.

I really agree with you on that. I really got into Greek myths thanks to Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson story. The thing is I never got why people hate Hera. I mean sure, shes kind of mean, but can you blame her!? In the actuall myths Zeus forced himself on Hera. The person who has my hate is Zeus.
