Greek Goddess Ornament, Aphrodite, Athena, Hera

Details

A great gift for anyone who loves Greek mythology. The ornament is a clear glass ball, 4 inches in diameter, with a golden apple and FOR THE FAIREST on one side and the the Greek goddesses Hera, Athena, and Aphrodite on the other.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I did this ornament for a contest that challenged me to come up with an item with an apple theme. The ornament was inspired by the following story:

Zeus held a banquet to celebrate the marriage of Peleus and Thetis, and he invited everyone except Eris, the goddess of discord. So she threw out a golden apple labeled "for the fairest," and the goddesses Hera (queen of the gods), Athena (goddess of wisdom), and Aphrodite (goddess of love) started fighting over the apple. So Zeus chose Paris of Troy to choose the fairest goddess. The three goddesses tried to bribe Paris. Hera promised he'd rule the world. Athena promised he'd be wiser than some of the gods. And Aphrodite promised him the most beautiful woman in the world. Paris chose Aphrodite and gave her the golden apple, and she gave him Helen of Troy, which eventually led to the Trojan War.

The ornament has more apples swirling around Aphrodite, because she is the one Paris chose as the fairest. There are also green swirls symbolizing Eris' discord.

Policies

Payment:
Credit cards and Paypal accepted. Maryland residents are charged 6% sales tax.

Payment must be received within 48 hours or your order will be canceled.

Shipping:
My shipping costs a little bit more than you might expect for a three- or four-inch ornament. That's because I pack my ornaments with enough padding to make it safely to your home.

Shipping is done by Priority Mail; please allow up to 5 days for delivery. I can also do rush delivery through UPS and will charge accordingly.

Refunds and Exchanges:
Returns of art ornaments and standard Greek ornaments are accepted within 7 days of your receiving them. Though it will break my heart, I will issue a refund. However, I do not give refunds for custom orders or customized/personalized Greek ornaments.

In all my time doing this, all of my ornaments have arrived at their destinations safe and sound. There is always a possibility, however, that an ornament could be broken during shipping. If your ornament does arrive broken, just contact me within 24 hours of receiving your ornament and I will replace it at no charge to you.

Custom Orders:
I LOVE custom orders! Just let me know what you're looking for! I will start by creating a couple of drawings of potential designs. I charge you for the work once you pick/approve a design, and I start work once payment is received. If you like a design but need a few changes, that's okay. I will go through two rounds of changes/revision of the design.

Allow an additional 5-10 days for me to create your ornament once a design is approved.

Again, I do not give refunds for custom orders, but I will re-do ornaments that arrive broken, as long as you let me know within 24 hours of getting them.

Greek Ornaments:
The Greek ornaments you see in my listings are made to order. Please allow up to 10 days, depending on how close to Christmas we are, for creation and delivery of your ornament.

Any other questions? Just contact me!
