Afrodita y el juicio de Paris
Aphrodite and the judgment of Paris is the story that tells the misfortune or fortune of a goddess emerged from the depths of the sea. The Judgment of Paris, represents the dispute between three of the most popular goddesses, Aphrodite, Hera and Athena who wanted to own a golden apple that contained the words “for the fairest”. Paris was responsible for making the choice. Was bribed with different proposals, but finally chose Aphrodite’s offer that promised the most beautiful mortal woman in the world as a wife. This young woman was Helena, who was kidnapped by Paris and consequently caused the Trojan War.
