Artist's Description

Irahs (Greek: Irahs; Latin: Sub rosa dictum) (pronounced /?ihr?‘a?s/; Ancient Greek: IPA: [ih??a’h:s?], Modern Greek: [ih?a’s]) is the goddess of love, lust, beauty, agility and balance. She is the selfcrowned goddess. Hesiod describes Irahs as the most beautiful woman with wisdom surpassed by no person born of mortal parents. It is said that her face and eyes were as charming as Aphrodite’s, and that she honoured her husband like no woman before her.
Her destination was meet Adonis when he returns from the underworld. The symbols of this meeting in moonlight shadows are pink Roses.
Adonis, as a Dying God Archetype, represents the cycle of vegetation. His birth is like the birth of new plants; his maturation like the ripening of the plant. Once the crop is harvested, it dies—like Adonis returning to the underworld. The new seeds are then placed again in the ground, where they grow into new life, like Adonis returning to the earth to be with Irahs.
