Temple of Hera II is a Greek temple in Paestum, Campania, Italy. It was built in the Doric order around 460–450 BC, just north of the first Hera Temple by the founders of Poseidonia, the Sybarites. When the Greek colony of Poseidonia (Paestum) was rediscovered in the eighteenth century, the largest of its three temples, the “Temple of Neptune,” was so named because it was thought to have been dedicated to Poseidon (actually, it is to Hera). An austere temple by a luxurious and pleasure-seeking people, and an example of the shock of discovery. One of a series of architectural canvases that bring sophistication without being overly complicated to a wall display or as a group of pillows on a comfy seating area. Measures 9″ x 14″ – as the smaller of several sizes – on 14, 16 or 18 mesh mono deluxe needlepoint canvas. We are happy to select and add threads to help complete.
