Also known as Athena, the boy on her left side is Erichthonios , not her son, but the son of Hephaestus (a virgin birth of Hera). She simply takes care for him, cause the little boy decided to like her a lot ( I did babysitting lately, that's right ;))
She stands for fight / war and crochet / knitting, amongst other things. So the poor person on the front, has to fight with knittings.

In the middle, I tried to draw the Eagle Nebula, also known as "pillars of creation"


Cybele (Phrygian: Matar Kubileya/Kubeleya "Kubeleyan Mother", perhaps "Mountain Mother"; Lydian Kuvava; Greek: Κυβέλη Kybele, Κυβήβη Kybebe, Κύβελις Kybelis), was an originally Anatolian mother goddess. Little is known of her oldest Anatolian cults, other than her association with mountains, hawks and lions. She may have been Phrygia's State deity; her Phrygian cult was adopted and adapted by Greek colonists of Asia Minor, and spread from there to mainland Greece and its more distant western colonies from around the 6th century BCE.

In Greece, Cybele met with a mixed reception. She was partially assimilated to aspects of the Earth-goddess Gaia, her Minoan equivalent Rhea, and the Corn-Mother goddess Demeter. Some city-states, notably Athens, evoked her as a protector but her most celebrated Greek rites and processions show her as an essentially foreign, exotic mystery-goddess, who arrives in a lion-drawn chariot to the accompaniment of wild music, wine, and a disorderly, ecstatic following. Uniquely in Greek religion, she had a transgender or eunuch mendicant priesthood. Many of her Greek cults included rites to a divine Phrygian castrate shepherd-consort Attis, who was probably a Greek invention. In Greece, Cybele is associated with mountains, town and city walls, fertile nature, and wild animals, especially lions.

In Rome, Cybele was known as Magna Mater ("Great Mother"). The Roman State adopted and developed a particular form of her cult, and claimed her conscription as a key religious component in their success against Carthage during the Punic Wars. Roman mythographers reinvented her as a Trojan goddess, and thus an ancestral goddess of the Roman people by way of the Trojan prince Aeneas. With Rome's eventual hegemony over the Mediterranean world, Romanised forms of Cybele's cults spread throughout the Roman Empire. The meaning and morality of her cults and priesthoods were topics of debate and dispute in Greek and Roman literature, and remain so in modern scholarship.

In the back of this I noted a quote of Nietzsche, so it should be mentioned also, so true... :mangapunksai:

Mixed the song I like a lot from "the doors", "waiting for the sun", with the mythological greek figures:D

"waiting for you, to tell me, what went wrong"
the doors, waiting for the sun.

:sun: :sun: :sun:

P.S. I like the earlier version of the story more, then that one, which is from Euripides, that's too heavy;)

Made with (coloured )ink, felt pen, on regular paper (what was not the best idea, I had in my life, cause it is simply too thin).

Idea to make this, came because of the contest "pearls are girls best friend" from

CONTEST [link]

finnished it yesterday in the evening, while listening a german band called "Sĺime", mainly the song"Schmeiss es hin" (that's why that thing with her heart is ) and "Unsterblich". So, it' s infuenced by this two great songs.

Idea for the name came from a german band again, called Onkelz, songs name is "fang mich" and there he is saying that, great song also btw, and it goes good with it, in my opinion.
Folly, error, sin, avarice
Occupy our minds and labor our bodies,
And we feed our pleasant remorse
As beggars nourish their vermin.

Our sins are obstinate, our repentance is faint;
We exact a high price for our confessions,
And we gaily return to the miry path,
Believing that base tears wash away all our stains.

On the pillow of evil Satan, Trismegist,
Incessantly lulls our enchanted minds,
And the noble metal of our will
Is wholly vaporized by this wise alchemist.

The Devil holds the strings which move us!
In repugnant things we discover charms;
Every day we descend a step further toward Hell,
Without horror, through gloom that stinks.

Charlesd Baudelalaire, to the reader

Hecate or Hekate, ancient goddess, frequently depicted in triple form and variously associated with crossroads, entrance-ways, fire, light, the Moon, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, necromancy, and sorcery. She has rulership over earth, sea and sky, as well as a more universal role as Saviour (Soteira), Mother of Angels and the Cosmic World Soul.

Idea came, while reading the great letters of the french revolutionist Mirabeu ( but his love letters are awful!) :no:. So I tried to draw him, while reading him:) There are rumours that he was killed by Jesuits ( but that's no problem, cause in Jesuit believe they are allowed to kill, torture, lie and everything, as long as it is "well- meant", you can always find reasons, when you search long enough, so it is quite comfortable for them and it is of course always for religion, what they do ;))


First I wanted to call this "estranged", like the song from Guns n' Roses, but "time to go" seems to fit better.

"And you don't talk so loud
An you don't walk so proud
Any more, AND WHAT FOR?"

-"Not their love of humanity, but the impotence of their love, prevents the Christians of today - burning us. "

-"Just look at the faces of the great Christians! They are the faces of great haters."

-"When on a Sunday morning we hear the old bells ring out, we ask ourselves, “Is it possible! This is done on account of a Jew crucified two thousand years ago who said he was the Son of God. The proof of such an assertion is wanting". "
(One of my favorites from him, this one made me really laugh out loud!:giggle:)
-"What was formerly merely sickly now becomes indecent : it is indecent to be a Christian today. "

-"I call Christianity the one great curse, the one great intrinsic depravity, the one great instinct of revenge, for which no means are venomous enough, or secret, subterranean and small enough, I call it the one immortal blemish upon the human race. "

-"The Christian resolve to find the world ugly and bad, has made the world ugly and bad. "

-"But this people has deliberately made itself stupid, for nearly a millennium: nowhere have the two great European narcotics, alcohol and Christianity, been abused more dissolutely. "

-“As long as a man had the courage to reject what society told him to do, he could live life on his own terms. To what end? To be free. But free to what end? To read books, to write books, to think.”

“To leave the world a little better than you found it. That's the best a man can ever do.”

“عندما اكتب لا تهمني الغرفة التي أشغلها. المساحة الحقيقية للكتابة هي الصفحة أمام انفي، عندما اكتب كل الغرف تصبح خفيّة”

“Our lives carry us along in ways we cannot control, and almost nothing stays with us. It dies when we do, and death is something that happens to us every day.”

-" In the end, each life is irreducible to anything other than itself. Which is as much as to say: lives make no sense.”

Wikipedia about Semele: [link]

"Zeus' wife, Hera, a goddess jealous of usurpers, discovered his affair with Semele when she later became pregnant. Appearing as an old crone, Hera befriended Semele, who confided in her that her lover was actually Zeus. Hera pretended not to believe her, and planted seeds of doubt in Semele's mind. Curious, Semele asked Zeus to grant her a boon. Zeus, eager to please his beloved, promised on the River Styx to grant her anything she wanted. She then demanded that Zeus reveal himself in all his glory as proof of his godhood. Though Zeus begged her not to ask this, she persisted and he was forced by his oath to comply. Zeus tried to spare her by showing her the smallest of his bolts and the sparsest thunderstorm clouds he could find. Mortals, however, cannot look upon Zeus without incinerating, and she perished, consumed in lightning-ignited flame."

In the right hand she holds the Sistrum and the holy water in the flagon, with the snake, is in the left hand. Maybe I should call it Serapis, don't know :O_o:

...but the price might be higher then you can imagine ;)

Made this one, while reading, Jan Yoors "the Gypsies". He lived a while with gypsies as he was a very young boy, from a belgian family [link]
I wouldn't like to live that way, but I can understand, why people want...
It' s a nice book and inspired me for "you can have it all".

The name, I took from a song again :) Band: Böhse Onkelz, name of the song: "Du kannst alles haben" (You can have it all). I just love that song and even after listening it a million times, it still makes me smile. The singer says to a girl, that she can have everything from him, what she wants, his love, his life etc. :blahblah: and his anger, his hate, his lies... :giggle:
he simply says the truth ;)
One good sentence in this song is "Maybe I'm not the right one for you" or "Let me complicate your life...and I will always be, there for you"

I thought about, to took one of them as the name of this painting/drawing, but I decided just to take the title of the song, the rest is already in it:)

The drawing is about adoring something or someone, without knowing or imagine what could be behind.

And I guess the Dalai Lama said something like that, that it can be a great luck, not receiving, what you want ;)
