AphroditeGoddess of Love, Beauty, and Desire

The goddess and her bird the Dove. All her symbols were a mirror, a gridle, and a seashell

Roman God: Venus

She was born during the primal murder, when Cronus murdered his father, Oranos, and threw his body into the sea. Foam rose and a beautiful maiden standing naked and dripping stood on a seashell. Wherever she stepped, flowers bloomed and beach sand turned to green grass.
