I think I missed something...

I saw on Facebook a post about a new Collector Club special called Demeter so I went to my email to see if there was something there from Breyer about it and there was...
They say Demeter is the 4th and final model of the Goddess series, but what happened to #3?  Hera was first, correct?  Then Aphrodite.  Who was #3?  Was I asleep?  Not that it really matters since I didn't win the others, but I feel like I'm missing something.

Demeter is the Goddess of Harvest and the Earth and is also called Mother Earth.  I'm not sure what I think of the model or the mold...the dapples look a little "fish scale" in the picture.  I'm going to enter for her, but likely will pass her off to someone who is collecting the whole series.  There's a few out there in Blab-land who got all 4 Gods and are also trying to collect the corresponding Goddesses.  But odds are, I won't win.  hahaha.

  2. Wow... that's kind of funny! Breyer made a *huge* mistake. Demeter is the goddess of harvest, true. But *Gaea* is the goddess of Earth and is also called Mother Earth. Not Demeter. I'm sorry but that made me laugh when I saw that on the Breyer website! I love Greek mythology and read loads about it, so that caught my eye right away!

    1. Oh, that's a bummer. Well, likely nobody at Breyer is versed in Greek Mythology and if they are, they might not be high enough on the food chain to point out the error.

    2. Haha! I figured that. It is rather amusing though :D Well, it does teach us one thing. Do your research! Whether it's sculpting, tack making or even advertising!

    4. I know nothing about Greek Mythology although I've heard of Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite and Athena. And not just from the Breyer series. Hehehe ;)

    5. You make me giggle too. I mean seriously, if I want a laugh, I click your blog. Especially the post "This Is Called A Personal Sized Pizza!?"

      Laugh.

    6. I'm glad I can make you laugh, Alyssa.

      You should've seen the size of that thing, though! It was HUGE. Two people could've eaten off that thing easily.

  3. Thank you, Sarah and Alyssa. I'd forgotten about Athena. Obviously. Hahaha
