Most probably they'll annoy the Welsh gay community. The Queenes of the Cymry should have moustaches and be wearing leather caps (or hats, I'm not sure if you use the word 'cap' as in the headwear sort of cap in the USA).

So what the hell have those three Greek statues got to do with Welsh people?

I thought the only Queens of the Cymry were to be found in Cardiff's gay bars.

Cymru = Wales
Cymry = Welsh people

What is the Cymry? Is it just someone spelling Wales badly?

Mmmm, Wisdom has to be Athena.

Patience looks like Aphrodite.

Loneliness...either Hera or Vesta.


Or maybe Vespa, the Italian Goddess of Motorscooters...

"I wonder how they can tell if it's realy the goddess Artemis ... Maybe it was just the sculptor's girlfriend... "

Maybe she was, and maybe that's the point. Remember how Kazantzakis described how Zorba saw Madame Hortense: "The individual dissapeared, the features were obliterated, whether young or senile, beautiful or ugly - those were mere unimportant variations. Behind each woman rises the austere, sacred and mysterious face of Aphrodite."

The giant sugar cube on her head is surely the clue ...
