Hecate by mari-na Hecate by mari-na
Hecate or Hekate is a chthonic Greco-Roman goddess associated with magic and crossroads.
She is attested in poetry as early as Hesiod's Theogony. An inscription from late archaic Miletus naming her as a protector of entrances is also testimony to her presence in archaic Greek religion. wikipedia [link]

cool Hekate painting, that shows her as young woman, true to mythology. She is NO crone goddess, but a deity of the starry night sky and also the moon.
Her twin Hekatos, was later to become  Apollon, sun god and ruler of the day. Hekate#s moon aspect changed into Artemis.
She is an old pre-hellenistic Goddess, part of dualistic twin deities, representing night and day.

This is probably the best image of Hecate that I have seen apart from actual ancient Greek images. You have really captured the image that I had in my mind of Hecate.

Although I don't agree with the fact that Hecate has to be a triple goddess because she has three different aspects, I still love this. It's amazing.

one of the most amazing depictions of Hecate. I love the way you made the snakes and dogs look. I love that you made her a Maiden not a Crone (the way the ancients would have viewed her) and I love that there is full moon as the dark moon is not the only time we can call upon her.
