Aphrodite Urania Necklaces
Aphrodite Urania,was the Goddess of the Divine love.
These necklaces are made with pebbles I found at Aphrodite’s birthplace in Cyprus. These necklaces represent the Love and beauty of the Goddess Aphrodite.
Their primitive style shows the purity and the nature. They combine the Sea and the Earth. The cord and bronze wire were used for binding the stone and create these unique necklaces.
They are worldwide unique and no one can be the same.
Wearing one of these necklaces makes you feel unique and connected with the Love and beauty of the Goddess Aphrodite.
Aphrodite Urania (Greek: Οὐρανία) was an epithet of the Greek goddess Aphrodite, signifying "heavenly" or "spiritual", to distinguish her from her more earthly aspect of Aphrodite Pandemos, "Aphrodite for all the people". The two were used (mostly in literature) to differentiate the more "celestial" love of body and soul from purely physical lust. Plato represented her as a daughter of the Greek god Uranus, conceived and born without a mother. According to Hesiod, she was born from the severed genitals of Uranus and emerged from the sea foam. Wine was not used in the libations offered to her. According to Herodotus, the Arabs called this aspect of the goddess "Alitta" or "Alilat" (Ἀλίττα or Ἀλιλάτ).
Aphrodite Urania was represented in Greek art with a swan, a tortoise or a globe.
