Product Description

The scene dates back to that time when Gods lived among the people. A lovely maiden is brought to the sea shore by the rough waves. Three fishermen have come to see the condition of the sea and finds the maiden lying on the shore posing erotically. She glow and grows beautiful every moment. The anglers goes near her and looks at her with awe. They begin a conversation and finds her to be the Goddess of love, Aphrodite. The anglers bring her to the town in all luxuries they can afford. Aphrodite is not well received by the general mass. They pass various negative comments on her character and being. She cannot tolerate it and appear in front of all. Everybody is taken by her beauty and her eternal glow. She goes to the pulpit and delivers her speech to which the common mass falls at her feet. She lives in the service of the people of Cyprus and one day she sees Hephaestus and falls in love with him. Day after day they meet and their relation develops. Hephaestus is mad for her, though he can never measure Aphrodite's love for him. In the heaven, there is a mad scramble for the highest position. Cronus still remembers the prophecy and he doesn't want to leave the seat at any cost. But it is too hard for him to retain the seat because his son, Zeus, overthrows him and declares himself the king of the Heaven. Myrrha, the daughter of king of Cyprus performs incest with the father(without his knowledge) and escapes the next morning from being killed by her father. Aphrodite helps her by transforming her into a tree. When she gives birth to a baby(Adonis), Aphrodite accepts to keep him in her care. Aphrodite and Hephaestus plans to marry to give the child(Adonis) a parental love. They go to the Heaven, the day before the celebration of the victory that Zeus and his train have won against the Titans. The celebration of the victory also follows the declaration of the marriage of Aphrodite and Hephaestus. Hephaestus's foster mother, Thetis is not happy with his idea of marrying Aphrodite. She smells some danger. Achilles, his foster brother too warns him but Hephaestus's love for Aphrodite is so strong that it makes their marriage possible. After their marriage, Hephaestus's life does not go happily. Aphrodite is not loyal to him. She indulges in love-making with Hermes, Ares and also her foster child Adonis. Hephaestus begins suspecting her but each time he sees her, her beauty makes him forget everything. Aphrodite betrays Hephaestus. Hephaestus cannot tolerate such betrayal. One day he finds Aphrodite making love to Ares and with magical spells he creates a golden net and takes them captive. He bring them to Zeus to do the judgement. Hephaestus is not happy with what Zeus said( though Zeus is not biased). Hephaestus being betrayed by Aphrodite, decides to leave Heaven and go back to the Earth, where he can give treatment to his heart because all heavenly elements turns dull to him. Aphrodite goes to reside in Ares's heart. If a rich man smiles in one land, a poor man cries in some other land. Fortune is in our own hands we can change it any time, but the disease of betrayal will continue to exist – among humans and Gods.
