Greek & Roman Mythology Weathervanes
We are fortunate indeed that so many of the wonderful stories from Greek and Roman times survived the millennia and remain alive today. Some of our most impressive weathervane designs are based on these famous gods, goddesses, and mythical creatures. In addition to the epic poetry that informs these narratives, the earliest surviving reference to a hand hammered copper weathervane dates back to Hellenistic Greek times. The way the sculptors of ancient Greece made their weathervanes is not significantly different from the way we make ours today. It is astonishing to think that at the time these stories were first being told, artisans were at work creating copper weathervanes and over two thousand years later, we are hand crafting weathervanes based on these very stories! We are in the process of adding all 800 existing weathervane designs to our site. Rest assured that if you don’t see an old favorite here yet, we still have it!
