(Music: Wendy Rule – Hecate)

Hecate, Greek goddess of crossroads, she is associated with entrance-ways, night, moonlight, magic, witchcraft, knowledge of herbs and poisonous plants, ghosts, necromancy, and sorcery. Her attributes are the key, dagger and torch. The sacred animal of the goddess is a black dog. Hecate is very powerful patroness for many witches. She was generally represented as three-formed, though the earliest known images of the goddess are singular

Previous take on her from 2016, still love this piece and her triple form:

I recently read Laurie Halse Anderson's "Wonder Wonder" graphic novel and Diana says that the Statue of Liberty reminds her of Hecate. With her crown and dress design here I really agree!

As someone just beginning to study witchcraft and a few of the patron gods and goddesses I am drawn to Hecate and a majority of what she represents. Love love love that you put her in purple. It's the color of magic and majesty, and my favorite.

As with your previous Hekate piece, this perfectly captures her! I love it!


Also, black wolves are sacred to her. ;)

Great Hecate, Queen of Night and the Crossroads.


Isn't there a theory to the effect that she came to Greece by way of Egypt due to the similarity of her name to the Egyptian word for magic, hekau?

I always wondered about her, You create such sinister beauty!
