Aphrodite and Ares
sons of Zeus, are the Divine Couple. In them love
and death, two of the most opposite elements possible, unite. They
represent the image of profound symbolism in ancient Greece.
On one hand there is Aphrodite, the goddess of love,
and not only that of the physical kind but also that belonging to
the of purity of the soul.
She is represented by a dove, which also is the symbol
On the other, there is Ares, God of brutal
strength, of anger and violence, always accompanied by his two children,
fear and terror. He is the symbol of destruction joined with love,
through the power of Eros.
Only Aphrodite, at times, will manage to rid him
of his weapons, tire him with love, and make him lay against her
Godly body asleep where peace prevails.
In this mythical embrace we may find the roots
of the famous saying...
