Mandala to Hecate
This piece is an ode to Hecate, queen of the night. Hecate is an ancient Greek triple goddess, along with Persephone and Demeter. As the torch bearer, she leads people through their underworld journey, the dark realms of the unknown and unseen, to illuminate where transformation is going to take place and to be by our side when we feel lost in the depths. She is often seen accompanied by her 3 headed dog who is a symbol of her fierce protective abilities. Both the snake and the labyrinth are symbols of transformation, shedding the old, dying, and blossoming into the new, rebirth. She is the goddess of witchcraft, sorcery, herbs and potions, and she is the holder of the keys of knowledge of the occult mysteries, the keys to the underworld.
This visual talisman is intended to invoke the energies of Hecate for ritual purposes, promoting safe journeying into the underworld, occult wisdom, transformation, and illumination.
