Artist's Description

This image has been up before but due to request i have now increased its size. Hecate is most commonly known as the goddess of witchcraft, but she also has many other symbols and meaning and her history dates back to Turkey before being addopted by the Greeks. Hecate is always seen carrying a lamp or touch as she is linked to seeing the dead into Haydes, and its this link with the lost that links her with cross-roads. She is also linked with all things that come out at night but only the wolf is portrayed with her at all times, but owls, wild boar, bats, snakes, pumpkins and black dogs can also be linked to her.
