According to the greek mythology, Eris was the goddess of discord and the comrade of Ares, the despiadated god of war. Her most important episode in the mythology, was when she was not invited to the wedding of Tetis and Peleo. She went to the wedding anyway and thrown a golden apple, in which there was a sentence written: "For the most beautiful". Three goddesses, Hera, Aphrodite and Athena, tried to win the prize selecting as a judge a sheperd called Paris. Venus won because she promised the most beautiful woman to him if she were selected. That was the beginning of the Trojan War, one of the most important historic wars ever.P L E A S E F U L L V I E W !
So here it is my view of that goddess. Lots of symbolisms this time, hope you can get them all :]
