About Hestia – Vesta
In Ancient Greek religion, Hestia is a virgin goddess of the hearth, architecture, and the right ordering of domesticity, the family, and the state. In Greek mythology she is a daughter of Cronus and Rhea and the eldest of the Olympian Gods. Hestia received the first offering at every sacrifice in the household. In the public domain, the hearth of the prytaneum functioned as her official sanctuary. With the establishment of a new colony, flame from Hestia’s public hearth in the mother city would be carried to the new settlement . She sat on a plain wooden throne with a white woolen cushion and did not trouble to choose an emblem for herself, Her Roman equivalent is Vesta.

Material and manufacturing process: Cast Marble
Cast marble statues are made from a composite material in which natural crushed Greek marble stone is mixed with a small amount of resin which acts as a glue. The mixture is then poured into a mold of the design of the statue. Because the powder is so fine, the smallest details can be reproduced using this method. Over 90% of the finished sculpture is natural crushed Greek marble stone, giving it a look and feel of solid natural marble. All sculptures are hand finished to ensure the best quality. This strong material is water and weather resistant, bubble free, will not crack and can be washed with most cleaning agents.
