Kallisti: To the Fairest Picture

Painting of Eris, Goddess of Discord and Chaos, holding the Apple of Discord.

If you aren't familiar with Greek mythology, she got pissed off with the rest of the Greek Pantheon for not allowing her to go to a wedding, so she crashed the reception and tossed this apple, which says "To the fairest" into the crowd. Three vain goddesses (Hera, Athena and Aphrodite) fought over it. Zues decided he didn't want to deal with their beauty contest, and gave the task to the mortal prince of Troy, Paris. Aphrodite promised that if he Paris gave the apple to her, she'd make the most beautiful woman in the world fall in love with him. This woman was Helen. The apple basically triggered the whole Trojan War.
