Storyboard Text

  • Iris was the goddess of the rainbow and the messenger of the Olympian gods. She was often described as the handmaiden and personal messenger of Hera.
  • Iris is depicted in ancient Greek vase painting as a beautiful young woman with golden wings, a herald's rod, and sometimes a water-pitcher in her hand. 
  • For the coastal-dwelling Greeks, the rainbow's arc was most often seen spanning the distance beteween cloud and sea, and so the goddess was believed to replenish the rain-clouds with water from the sea.
