Gaia or Gaea (Tellus / Terra Matter)

Gaea (or Gaia) gives Erichthonius to Athena in the presence of Kekrops (or Cecrops)

The Goddess Athena, with a helmet on the head, shield in the hand, head of Medusa made with leather of snake on the chest, seizes by the hairs the winged giant Alkyoneous. Gaea (or Gaia, Earth), mother of the giants, aims her hand to the Goddess while imploring to forgive her son, but the snake of Athena is poissoning the young giant. From the Pergamon . Pergamon Zeus Altar which is now in Berlin

"A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space.
We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest.
A kind of optical delusion of consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty...
We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if mankind is to survive"
Albert Einstein (1879-1955)
