This storyboard does not have a description.
Hera banished her son Hephaestus from Mount Olympus because she was ashamed to have a crippled son. (He was born with only 1 leg.)
You useless bit of scum! Go away! Never haunt us with your presence again!
Luckily for him though, he was rescued by 2 goddesses, Thetis and Eurynome, where he was raised in their cave by the River Okeanos.
Well, 2-legged boys are so, well, boring, right?
There, he grew up and became a skilled smith
Hephaestus became angry with his mother for banishing him from Mount Olympus, so he sent her a cursed throne to get back at her.
When Hera sat down on the cursed throne, she was immediately bound to the chair and could not get out.
Zeus called all of the gods and told them that the first person to bring Hephaestus up to Mount Olympus would get Aphrodite's hand in marriage. (Hephaestus was the smith god, so he would know how to free someone from a cursed chair.) Aphrodite didn't mind, because she thought that her beloved Ares, god of war, would succeed.
