'A spirit of glory as the hawk, a spirit of strength as the ram. I am a light, a purpose, a rager against oblivion.'  -- Egyptian Book of the Dead

My very personal take on  Hecate. Been working on it on and off for a while. Enjoy :)

Wow. This is phenomenal! There is so much detail in the various mythologies that you've managed to incorporate, and STILL make it beautiful to the eye. Well done!

The Goddess of magic, The Dark/New Moon/Crone, Patron of Darkness, Ravens, and Cats, Keeper of the dead/dying/reborn. A queen in her own right.
She is one my favorite aspects of the Dark Mother.

La la la la  I love it! Absolutely love it! Heart  Hecate is my favorite figure in Greek Mythology! If not for the broad variations there are of her, and the many possibilities! :happybounce:

Beautiful work - the composition just all comes together perfectly.  Even the way the colours balance each other out - it just works.

Really, really great work!
