Red: the Color of the Matron

The second aspect of the Goddess is the Matron or Mother.
She symbolizes fertility and nurturing care. Red is traditionally
utilized in India to paint boulders sacred to the Goddess. The
colors of the Goddess are White, Red, and Black.

This is Marina, the second aspect of Aphrodite.
