Creation of Earth

Greek Mythology is the major wing of classical mythology. These myths inspired us to create Gaia & Co.

Greek Mythology was part of the religion in Ancient Greece. The most popular Greek Mythology figures include Greek Gods like Zeus, Poseidon & Apollo, Greek Goddesses like Gaia, Aphrodite, Hera and Athena and Titans like Atlas.

Gaia - the goddess of Earth

Reading through the creation myth, you find out that Chaos existed before everything else. He consisted of Darkness, Mass, and Void in confusion, and then the Earth took the shape of Gaia the Greek goddess. The starry heavens, the form of the sky god Uranus, the rivers, seas, plains, and mountains all came from Gaia.

Gaia was the great mother of all creation - the heavenly gods were descended from her through her union with Ouranos (Uranus) (Sky), the sea-gods from her union with Pontos (Sea), the Gigantes (Giants) from her mating with Tartaros (the Pit), and mortal creatures born directly from her earthy flesh.

Temples and Places of Worship

Although there are no existing temples to the Greek Goddess of the Earth, Gaia, there are many great art pieces in galleries and museums across the Greece depicting the goddess. Sometimes depicted as half-buried in the earth, Gaia is portrayed as a beautiful voluptuous woman surrounded by fruits and the rich earth that nurtures the plant life.

Throughout history, Gaia was primarily worshipped in open nature or in caves, but the ancient ruins of Delphi, 100 miles northwest of Athens on Parnassus mountain, was one of the primary places she was celebrated.
