Aphrodite Necklace - Greek Mythology Copper Antique Wax Seal Pendant


ORIGINS: This pendant is made using an antique wax seal of unknown origins, cupid and Aphrodite. Aphrodite is holding cupid's bow and the infant is reaching for it.

MEANING:
In Roman mythology, Cupid (Latin cupido, meaning "desire") is the god of desire, affection and erotic love. He is often portrayed as the son of the goddess Venus, who is often depicted consoling him. During the Hellenistic period he was increasingly portrayed as a chubby boy. During this time, his iconography acquired the bow and arrow that remain a distinguishing attribute; a person, or even a deity, who is shot by Cupid's arrow is filled with uncontrollable desire. The Roman Cupid retains these characteristics, which continue in the depiction of multiple cupids in both Roman art and the later classical tradition of Western art.

Aphrodite, pictured with Cupid, is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure, and procreation. Her Roman equivalent is the goddess Venus.

SEAL:
This seal is made out of pure copper and hand stamped with a greek mythology wax seal.
Each seal is stamped, sanded, polished and oxidized for an antique look. Because they are hand-stamped individually and made to order, these pendants are truly unique, and no two pendants are the same (unlike silver pendants cast from a mold). Also available in silver.

DIMENSIONS:
The pendant is about 1″ across.
