Hera: Ancient Greece, from the Museum series, #3/3 (the third piece of triptych)

The art of Ancient Greece stands out among that of other ancient cultures for its development of naturalistic but idealized depictions of the human body, in which largely nude figures were generally the focus of innovation. From about 500 BC, statues began to depict real people and heroes of Greek mythology.
Hera is the goddess of women, marriage, family, and childbirth in ancient Greek religion and myth, one of the 12 Olympians and the sister-wife of Zeus.
Hera's symbols were the diadem, the sceptre, and the pomegranate - a symbol of fertility. In some Greek dialects, the pomegranate was called rhoa, thought to be connected with the name of the earth goddess Rhea, mother of Hera.
