    Just glancing at our player list, it is great to see how many countries are represented in this swap - even Greece itself! How is everyone coming along with your cards? I still need to make a third, and am having a hard time narrowing down my choices!

    I have two done...pretty sure i know what I'm doing for the next ones.

    Guess I can post the first two:

    Nine Muses.JPG
    The Nine Muses

    The Horae.JPG
    The Horae (the Hours) or goddesses (little g) of the seasons.
    Greeks only recognized three seasons.

    I wanted to do different ones than the norm.
    Am always open to trades. Happy to take requests to recreate a card, etc

    I can't believe you drew 9 figures - very ambitious! I also loved the goddesses of the seasons. Didn't realize they didn't recognize Winter - kind of like here in AZ (lol). Thanks for sharing!

    The rest of them...

    Here are my last two cards:

    Paris.JPG
    The Judgement of Paris
    The goddess Eris of Chaos was not invited to a wedding feast by the other Gods. To get even for this slight, she sent a golden apple engraved with the Greek word for To or For The Fairest. Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite got into a fight over who was the most beautiful. They went to Zeus for a judgement. He showed why he got to be the chief god and declined.

    He suggested they ask Paris, a mortal who had just lost a bet with Ares and been very good about it. The three goddesses came and asked him to choose. They all three cheated, of course. Hera offered Kingships, Athena offered widsom/knowledge, Aphrodite offered for the most beautiful woman in the world to fall in love with him.

    Being a growing young man, Paris chose Aphrodite. The Goddess failed to mention the most beautiful woman was already married. This is what supposedly started the Battle of Troy as Paris stole away Helen of Troy from her husband, the King.


    Vulcan.JPG
    Haphaestus (Vulcan)

    I have recently finished a book by Stephen Fry on the Greek gods, with modern commentary by him - very funny yet true to the tales. I loved the Greek and Roman myths when I was growing up and my cat was named Artemis, after the Goddess of the moon and hunting.
    All of this means - sign me up, please.
    I have a new address from the end of June - ROBINA.
