The Gaia talisman is made for those who nurture the world around them. Gaia is the foremost goddess in Greek Mythology. She is the earth personified, and the mother of Titans, gods, and many lesser beings. All life can be traced back to Gaia.
Myths vary, but most agree that either Gaia was the first being to ever exist, or that at the beginning of time, she was born from a cosmic egg with Chaos (void or air), Tartarus (abyss), and Eros (love). However it happened, all myth agrees that her wisdom reaches back to the dawn of time.
Her experience is surpassing. Gaia watched mountains form and empires fall. She held sway over many heavenly rebellions—it was her will that led to the downfall of monstrous Ouranos and tyrannical Kronos, kings of gods before Zeus.
Oaths sworn in her name were the most solemn and binding of all, for she is the mother of all things.
This talisman honors those who existed before, those who learned, fought, and sacrificed to make the world better, safer, and kinder for those who come after.
