•Hyperion (/haɪˈpɪəriən/; Greek: Ὑπερίων, translit. Hyperíōn, "The High-One") was one of the 12 titan children of Gaia (earth) and Uranus (sky). Said to be breathtakingly beautiful, Hyperion's name comes from the Greek word for "the one who watches from above." He is said to be the first to understand the cycles of the sun, the stars, the moon and the dawn or to even have ordered them in the first place.💫
Apollo is represented wearing a laurel wreath on his head. Daphne, meaning Laurel in Greek was a beautiful Naiad Nymph who was transformed into a bay laurel tree in order to escape Apollo’s lustful pursuit. Hence, bay laurel is associated with purity.
The Kiss by Gustav Klimt is a painting that has been argued to be symbolic of the kissing of Daphne and Apollo at the moment she is transformed into a laurel tree. •Laurel handcrafted #necklace in silver #elanaconcept#helioscollection
The sanctity of the olive tree was the result of a contest between Athena, Goddess of Wisdom, and Poseidon, God of the Sea, as to who would become the protector of a newly built city. The city would then be named after the one who gave the citizens the most precious and useful gift. With his trident, Poseidon struck a rock. Water rushed out of the rock, creating a spring of salty water, symbolizing his gift of sea power. Athena followed by striking a rock with her spear and produced the olive tree, an offering signifying fruitfulness and peace. The citizens chose the gift of Athena and she forever became the patroness of the city named after her. •Elia #handcrafted adjustable #necklace is a unique statement piece inspired by the Olive tree, sacred to Ancient Athens. #helioscollection#elanaconcept#Athens
