Hera: Goddess of the life of women and protectress of women in childbirth.
The ancient Greeks believed that The Milky Way was created after Hera, Goddess of childbirth's breastmilk sprayed across the cosmos.
Wife of Zeus, Hera is quite personal to us; she is both our tribute to mothers everywhere and Gemma's personal tribute to the challenges she experienced and overcame having recently coming to the end of her breastfeeding journey with our son.
Produced from solid White Oak, Hera has been given a thick American Black Walnut lamination over her entire body and has then been further adorned with a Mily Way sash of Iroko and Sapelle with sparkling white stars scattered throughout her design.
Arms and head spin freely (but with enough resistance to be posed), legs move through 180 degrees from front to back but again, offer enough resistance for posing.
This is a robust take on a classic design that allows scope for all manner of imaginary play that will last for years.
