Known as both Gaia and Gaea, the Goddess Gaia is a figure from Greek mythology. Her name means earth or land and shows that she was the human version of the earth. Some refer to her as the ancestral mother and claim that she gave birth to all of the elements of the world. Gaia birthed Uranus, also known as Ouranos and the Titans as well as other major figures such as the Gigantes and Cyclopes. Terra is the Roman version of the goddess.

In the creation myth, Chaos came before everything else. He was made of Void, Mass and Darkness in confusion; and then the earth in the form of Gaia came into existence. From “Mother Earth” sprang the starry heavens, in the shape of the sky God Uranus, and from Gaia also birthed the mountains, plains, seas and rivers that make up the Earth we know today.
