Hera, wife and sister of Zeus, was the Greek goddess of women and marriage. She is often portrayed holding a pomegranate, a symbol of both fertility and death. As "Queen of the Gods," many temples were erected and dedicated to her honor. The ancient ruins of her temple at Olympia is where, every four years, the Olympic torch is lit using a parabolic mirror to focus the sun's rays.
Woodstock Windsinger Chimes are musically-tuned using an ancient system known as "just intonation." This means the frequencies at which the different tubes vibrate are related to one another by simple whole-number ratios. Tones that are related in this way produce the purest, most beautiful musical intervals. This chime is tuned to the notes of Westminster Quarters, a common church bell melody. Let the Chimes of Hera sing out in jubilation at your wedding or other celebration.
