Last Week on ‘As the pottery wheel Turns
We learned about the many things that Hera had to do to keep up with Zeus’ philandering about the mortals.
Zeus is Our Guest Today
Zeus was not like the other gods. He knew what he wanted and he would get it. And he knew all it would take is a little bit of Magnum, Ferrari, or a dose of Le Tigre.
Unfortunately, meeting his philandering goals also meant killing mortals and upsetting the other gods and – much more than once – his goddess wife Hera.
“Zeus is here to set the record straight! What was Zeus to do? It was not his fault everyone wanted him! He was blessed with being “Zeus’ gift to women” everywhere! Surely, nobody could blame him for that!”
“This is complete ZeuSlander!”
indeed, It was true that the people simply couldn’t resist him – Mostly due to him being an all powerful god,
Zeus. was. “IT.”
Zeus’ tangled love life (including many rather questionable relationships) resulted in all of these children as detailed on this Greek gods Family Tree.
His harem included
- Leto who was the mother of Apollo and Artemis
- Semele who was the mother of Dionysus
- Maia who was the mother of Hermes
- Dione who was the mother of Aphrodite
- Hera, the wife of Zeus was the mother of Ares, Hebe and Hephaestus
- Demeter, the sister and lover of Zeus, was the mother of Persephone

And by gods, he knew how to pose!
It was no freak gasoline fight accident that brought this vase to life, but rather, the magic of raku and when the ash was cleared, Zeuslander was left to ponder life’s important questions alone on Mount Olympus – forever searching for an answer to “why male models?”
We may never know the answer.
What did you think about today’s raku pottery vase Mount Olympus and its ridiculously good looking tale?
