Beautifully detailed statue of the Goddess Hecate - goddess of the three
paths, goddess of witchcraft,
guardian of the household, protector of the newly born.
Here she is depicted standing on a crossroads with her torch and birthing knife
and 2 Greyhound Companions. Very rich in detail and symbolism.
Made of cold cast bronze or bone finished resin.
Hecate, a divinity of the Underworld and companion of Persephone, is called the
queen of night and the Goddess of the Cross-roads; her three faces are turned
towards as many directions, and her name was shrieked at night at the
cross-roads of cities.
She is often seen bearing torches, and it is with them that she killed Clytius
in the course of the Gigantomachy.
Hecate is regarded as supreme, both in Heaven and in the Underworld, and it is
said that Zeus calls upon her whenever any man on earth offers sacrifices, and
prays for favor.
On becoming the ruler of the universe, Zeus did not deprive Hecate of her share
of the privileges concerning earth, heaven and sea when the Titan ruled the
world before him, but she keeps them just as the division was in the beginning.
This Goddess, a night-wanderer, is credited with wit-depriving spells: It is
Hecate, some believe, who bestows wealth and grants advances to those whose
prayers she receives favorably.
Similarly, the outcome of war and victory in games may depend on her, who grants
glory to whom she pleases. And to those who work at sea, she gives great catch
or takes it away, if that is her will; likewise, concerning herds, she increases
their number from a few, or reduces it to be less, following her own will.
Regarded as nurse and overseer of the young, she is also said to have a part in
judgments and in assemblies distinguishing whom she will.
