Aphrodite

The Greek goddess of love, beauty, and pleasure.

Her Symbols

Her symbols were a scallop shell, a mirror, an apple, and a rose.

The Rose

The rose stands for love. Usually when people fall in love, they give each other roses.

The Apple

The apple stands for pleasure. When you eat an apple, usually you would like it. That is called PLEASURE.

The Mirror

The mirror stands for her beauty. If she is the goddess of beauty and love, then shouldn't she be beautiful???

The Scallop Shell

The scallop shell stands for her birth. One of the versions of her birth is that she washed onshore in a large scallop shell.

See?

Now do you know why she is a Greek goddess?!?!
