'Ancient Art of Medicine' Gods & Goddesses of Health & Beauty

Antosa's  love of  Art and the 'Art of Medicine' is portrayed so beautifully throughout Ancient times and is  epitomised in Ancient Greek Religion, Mythology & Art.

As  a former London  Harley Street Consultant in Holistic Health & Beauty, & with two immediate members of my own family practicing medicine (one as a surgeon) one must always recall to heart the ancient writings of
 Hippocrates
( Right: Engraving of Hippocrates by Peter Paul Ruben 1638) 

Hippocratic Oath 'Quote':

"I will remember that there is 'Art to Medicine' as well as 'Science', and that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon's knife or the chemist's drug.

I will prevent disease whenever I can, for prevention is preferable to cure"

Asclepius  & his daughters
The Ancient Greek Gods & Goddesses of Health & Beauty

 Asclepius was a god of medicine in ancient Greek religion and mythology.
(left Asclepius)Asclepius represents the healing aspect of the medical arts;


(right:) Hygieia: was the goddess/personification of health cleanliness and hygiene
While her fatherAsclepius was more directly associated with healing, she was associated with the prevention of sickness and the continuation of good health.

(left: The bowl of Hygieia) has been used as a symbol of the pharmacy professional at least as far back as 1796, when it was used on a coin minted for the Parisian Society of Pharmacy.

Panacea  was a goddess of Universal remedy.
Panacea was said to have a poultice or potion with which she healed the sick. This brought about the concept of the panacea in medicine a substance meant to cure all diseases.

Iaso was the goddess of recuperation from illness.

Aglaea,the goddess/personification of the glow of good health

Aceso:goddess of the healing process

I loved the words of this song (words below)which I have dedicated to all within the 21st Century medical profession including carers and anyone who cares for any living creature great or small  & a salute to the Ancient Gods & Goddesses of Health & Beauty!'
The Seikilos epitaph'  is the oldest surviving example of a complete musical composition, including musical notation, from anywhere in the world.

"While you live, shine
Don't suffer anything at all;
Life exists only a short while
And time demands its toll."


Enjoy the music and have a wonderful creative day!
