On the Ancient Greek island of Delos, the women worshiped a creature they called Brizo. They left offerings to this creature in exchange for the safety of their seafaring husbands and sons.
Brizo eventually became the Ancient Greek Goddess of Mariners, Sailors, and Fishermen.
Later on, she also became used in dreams and oracles, but we don’t paint her for that purpose. We paint her more for her role in protection of seafarers.
Thanks to Allie for modeling Brizo for us!
