Transcript of Hephaestus

BY: Delaney Carrigan Hephaestus
God of Fire Description of Hephaestus Hephaestus's main role was blacksmithing, and creating things out of metal. Hephaestus and Quail The quail is the animal that is symbolically associated with. Hephaestus was thrown over Olympus as a child and broke a leg, which made him limb and hobble, much like the quail's hobbling dance in the spring. Hephaestus was the son of Zeus and Hera. He was the god of goldsmiths, jewelers, blacksmiths, masons, fire and carpenters. He would build something out of every scrap of metal he found. He limped and hobbled around because of a broken leg (which I will explain later) He was also the only ugly immortal. His roman name is Vulcan. Hephaestus's Symbols Biopoem Hephaestus

Hephaestus was born he so ugly Hera, his mother, threw him over the walls of Olympus and he landed in the ocean where he was raised by Nereid Thetis. He was now crippled because of his fall. He stayed with Nereid Thetis for 9 years, and worked as a blacksmith making beautiful things. Hephaestus's Revenge
When Hephaestus grew up, he was angry at his mother and wanted revenge for her breaking his leg. He made a magical gold throne for Hera. When Hera sat on it she became trapped by invisible ropes. Other gods begged Hephaestus to come back and free her, but Hephaestus said that he had no mother. Dionysus got Hephaestus drunk and carried him back to Olympus on a mule, and after a while of begging Hera was set free only after he promised Hephaestus that Aphrodite would be his wife.
