God Hephaestus in Greek mythology
One day, Hera, envious of the jewelery of Thetis the Nereid asked them about their origins, and when she discovered that they were crafted by the son that she had despised, she went, took him and brought him back to the mountain of the gods. There, she offered him a blacksmith with 20 bellows and gave him as wife, the beautiful Aphrodite.
There is also another version,about the return of Hephaestus at the picks of Olympus, according to which he sent a gift to his mother, a unique art throne, when she sat on it she got trapped automatically by invisible shackles and forced to seek the help of the despised son to be released.
In the Iliad, Aphrodite appears to cheat Hephaestus with the charming Ares on the marital bed, but one day,unawared they got caught by the ugly but also clever god of fire ,trapping them in a thin gold net and then expose them in front of all the other gods . Hesiod, however, displays as a wife of Hephaestus Aglaia, the youngest of the Graces.
In a later incident, Zeus threw god-blacksmith from the god's residence because he was rushing to help Hera when she was hanging from the celestial vault, grounded for the storm she had sent against Hercules. This time, the fate of Hephaestus was to fall into shore on the island of Lemnos, where he was found by the Sintis at the evening, exhausted and broken both his legs from falling on the hard ground. The care and the hospitality of these poor people made their island the favorite place of God on earth of mortals. There, on Mount Mosychlos, he recreated, his permanent this time workshop. There he will create many exquisite objects which were ordering the gods, and weapons for some people.
Among the crafts of Hephaestus stands out the clay woman, Pandora, whom Zeus gave to Epimetheus as a wife in order to avenge the insult that had done by his brother Prometheus, when stole the fire.
