Winds of Olympus

  • Protective  Goddess of the hearth and home​
  • ​In charge of precious things; very protective of her treasures
  • With her red serpent accessories and crown of poisoned cactus spikes, she symbolizes the combination of pleasure and pain.
  • There was a ban on eating paprika during a fast. She couldn't help herself and ate paprika anyway. Her punishment  was being turned into a dog by Tonacatecehtli, the god of food. 
  • This may help to explain why dogs seem to like crouching by the fireplace so much.
