Hemera Greek Goddess of Daylight Statue. In Greek mythology Hemera (Greek: ?????, “day”) was the personification of day and one of the Protogenoi or primordial deities. She is the goddess of the daytime and, according to Hesiod, the daughter of Erebos and Nyx (the goddess of night). Hemera is remarked upon in Cicero’s De Natura Deorum, where it is logically determined that Dies (Hemera) must be a god, if Uranus is a god. The poet Bacchylides states that Nyx and Chronos are the parents, but Hyginus in his preface to the Fabulae mentions Chaos as the mother/father and Nyx as her sister. She was the female counterpart of her brother and consort, Aether (Light), but neither of them figured actively in myth or cult. Hyginus lists their children as Uranus, Gaia, and Thalassa (the primordial sea goddess), while Hesiod only lists Thalassa as their child. Reminiscent of classic Greek and Roman statues, our life-sized goddess Hemera sculpture is created in fiberglass-reinforced resin and finished to replicate French limestone. It elevates your statuary for a dramatic display. Perfect in a garden or spa, this impressive focal piece is grand-scale art – over five feet tall from base to fingertips. A graceful figure and an investment in European-style art!
