Goddess Hecate is considered to be the goddess of the crossroads, the place where decisions must be made and where one can look back into the past and forward into the future. Goddess Hecate belongs to the class of torch bearing deities and is represented as carrying a burning torch signifying she was the nocturnal goddess of the moon and a huntress who knew her way into the realms of spirits.
Goddess Hecate wears a gleaming head dress of stars with all the secret powers of Nature at her command. She has control over birth, life and death. Because of her power in the three areas of nature, heaven and earth she was represented in a triple form. Hence, she was referred to as the triple goddess.
Goddess Hecate is depicted as three female figures. Persephone (Proserpina) as the maiden, Demeter (Ceres) as the mother and Hecate as the wise woman or crone. This statue shows her with three heads and six arms, bearing torches ropes and daggers.
With the torch Hecate illuminates the secretes of mysteries. The rope symbolises the umbilical cord of rebirth and renewal. The knife represents her role as midwife, cutting the umbilical cord as well as severing the link between the body and the spirit at death. The two snakes symbolise the chthonic knowledge and rare wisdom of the other world.
Each Goddess Hecate Statue stands 156mm (6.5") tall and comes in a gift box too.
