Hera's Milk, 2011 - Steve Miller
About the Work
About Hera's Milk
Hera's Milk is the beginning of Miller's investigation of the beauty and fleeting nature of our natural resources. Hera, the Greek goddess called the Queen of Heaven, was the wife of Zeus. She was the goddess of women and marriage, as well as goddess of the sky and the starr heavens. The word galaxy comes from the Greek word gala meaning "mother's milk," and legend is that the Milky Way was formed from the milk spurting from the breasts of the Greek goddess Hera, Queen of Heaven. Where drops fell to earth, fields of lilies sprung forth.Read Less
