Pandia and Brizo

The next two in the series; this brings the total up to eleven little Greek Goddess paintings, out of twenty-four, one for each letter of the Greek alphabet. One more and I'll be half done!

The first is Pandia (Πανδια). She's the daughter of the Moon Goddess Selene and Zeus, and a Goddess of light (perhaps of the full moon, specifically). Her name means either 'All Bright' or 'All Divine'.

The most recent one is Brizo (Βριζω). She's a Sea Goddess who protects fishermen and seafarers, and She was especially worshiped on the island of Delos. She was said to give prophetic dreams.

I'm learning myself. These Goddesses are pretty obscure. :)
